Phil’s new book Joe and the Stars is illustrated by Connah Brecon and published by Scholastic Press.
In the red dust, where the sky is wide, Joe loves watching the stars. He marvels at their mystery and wonder. But when his family moves to the city… the stars are hard to see. Will Joe find a way to make them shine again? With autobiographical undertones, this is a twinkling tale of resilience, family and friendship.
