On a cool spring day 
in a nest on a branch,
a tiny star found himself all alone
on a pink and white blossoming apple tree, 
rooted upon an old field of green.

In a lilting, poetic style paired with brilliant illustrations, The Star Jumped Over the Moon tells the story of a star who lives in an apple tree but desperately wishes to shine in the night sky. But how? Through the seasons, the star and the apple tree grow, facing the inevitability of change, until the star finds the courage to jump.
