The Littlest Star A local Baptist Minister is making quite an impact with his book The Littlest Star as he raises money for a children’s charity. Here, author Richard Littledale tells the story so far…

The Littlest Star is a charming children’s Christmas tale about one very little star and one very big night. Written on November 23rd 2011 by local author and Minister of Teddington Baptist Church, Richard Littledale, it was designed, illustrated, formatted, printed and brought to sale within a remarkable three weeks. Every penny of the cover price goes to Shooting Star Chase, caring for children and young people in the hardest of times. In the past 12 months the book has raised nearly £2,000 for the charity, exhibited at international book fairs in three countries, featured on local and national radio, and been translated into German. The book is available in all Shooting Star Chase shops and online.”

Sounds like a good pre-Christmas gift if you’ve got little ones.

UPDATE: And from 23 December it will be available as an audio download just in time for Christmas.
