Staff Reviews


Utterly heartwarming and perfectly lovely! Stardust is a fairytale of the best sort. Gaiman will pull you along straight through the gap in the Wall and into all the wonders of Faerie. This is a book I never grow tired of re-reading.

— Kendra

A delightful fairy tale - storytelling at it's best! Irreverent at times, funny, exciting, and heartfelt. A great read for young & old alike.

— Lauren Napoli

Description


Catch a fallen star . . .

Tristran thorn promised to bring back a fallen star. So he sets out on a journey to fulfill the request of his beloved, the hauntingly beautiful Victoria Forester--and stumbles into the enchanted realm that lies beyond the wall of his English country town. Rich with adventure and magic, Stardust is one of master storyteller Neil Gaiman's most beloved tales, and the inspiration for the hit movie.
