"The best stories always take place in the dark!"— R.L. Stine
Dawn, Tobin, and Bismark awaken to disaster! A meteor has landed, and blue lights glow near the crater. To make matters worse, the forest’s pomelo fruits are making animals sick. As the Nocturnal Brigade investigates, they encounter Iris, a strange aye-aye, who claims moon monsters are to blame. The Nocturnal Brigade suspects a more earthly explanation and must quickly find the answers, and the cure, before the chaos threatens to harm them all!
In The Fallen Star , the third book in the critically acclaimed middle grade series The Nocturnals, the adventures of three unlikely friends—Dawn, a serious fox; Tobin, a sweet pangolin; and Bismark, a loudmouthed sugar glider—continue with captivating plot twists and plenty of humor.
Bonus full color illustrations at the start of each chapter

I remember my love of reading as a child, but I can't remember all the small details that shaped me today. Reading this book with my 10-year old nephew brought me back to my childhood. I could see his imagination running wild as we took turns reading, and it reminded me of how passionate I was at that age. This book also helped shape a conversation about diversity and acceptance. It is awesome to find a book that is not only fun to read, but can trickle into a more serious conversation with children in this very challenging age group. We loved it! :)
In Tracey Hecht’s, “The Fallen Star,” her readers will find the perfect addition to The Nocturnals series. As Dawn, Bismark, and Tobin begin another heroic crusade, Hecht expands the wonderful world of The Nocturnal Brigade. Her readers will enjoy more of Bismarck’s comical chatter and Tobin’s goofy heroics. New characters like Aye-aye Iris and the lemurs make an exciting debut. While combining animal facts with a well-devised plot, Hecht yet again creates a story your kids will love!
Get excited to join The Nocturnal Brigade for another exciting adventure! In “The Nocturnals,” Hecht intertwines literary technique and animal facts with a compelling story about the quest of three very different animal friends: Dawn, the fox, Bismark, the sugar glider, and Tobin, the pangolin. The reader follows these three unlikely friends as they embark on another mystery- solving journey. Along the way, Hecht continues with the humor she introduced in the other books, as The Nocturnal Brigade faces star creatures, an enigmatic aye-aye, and a fallen star.
My niece and I were unable to put down Tracey Hecht’s third book in “The Nocturnals.” The addition of new characters, more nocturnal animal facts, and delightful dialogue between Dawn the fox, Bismark the sugar glider and Tobin the pangolin had us giggling! In this new world filled with lemurs, star creatures, aye-ayes (look them up!) and blue glowing animals, we found ourselves alongside the three friends on their search for the disappearing blue flowers and the strange star creatures. “The Fallen Star” is the perfect addition to Hecht’s compelling series.
