Bubbay is lonely, with only the stars as friends. He lives in the desert tending his goats and sleeps under the stars. One night, Bubbay wishes for something he has never had – the stars hear him and, with the help of the magical Gubarlee and kangaroo, emu, crow and bower bird, Bubbay begins a quest to make his wish come true. A story full of magic, combined with richly textured illustrations.
