Sylvie and Star

Written by Julia Green

Key Stage 2 Animal Stories

LoveReading View on Sylvie and Star

A heartwarming story about a girl and her love for a puppy, a perfect choice for animal lovers.  Beautifully illustrated throughout with black and white drawings. One puppy with the wild in his eyes. One girl longing to care for him. The puppy would fit on one hand, it was so small. Its fur was a pale silver-grey all over, except for one dark star on its head.
