About Once Upon a Star:
When Nate wishes on a star for a shiny new spaceship, he gets more than he bargained for. Between a narrow escape from a hundred cranky Martians and almost getting flattened by a rolling planet, he has a lot to tell his mother when he gets home. Join Babu Press on a fantastic journey through the solar system set to excerpts from Gustav Holst’s The Planets and Mozart’s Ah! Vous Dirai-Je, Maman, otherwise known as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
