Molly & Pim and the Millions of Stars
by Martine Murray




Overview -
For fans of Katherine Rundell's Rooftoppers comes a story about mothers and daughters and magical trees that Rebecca Stead calls "an utter delight."

All Molly wants is to be normal like her friend Ellen Palmer. Ellen, with her neat braids and a tidy house and a mother and father who are home for dinner every night. But Molly's mom spends her mornings tramping through the woods, looking for ingredients for her potions. Their house is not neat, and their rooster, the Gentleman, runs wild in their yard. And it is the Gentleman that angers their grumpy neighbors, the Grimshaws. So Molly's mom makes a potion that will grow a tree between their houses.

When Molly's mom accidentally drinks the potion and turns into the tree, Molly is determined to get her back. But with the Grimshaws planning to cut down the tree branches that reach onto their property, time is of the essence. With the help of her mysterious classmate Pim Wilder, Molly sets out to save her mother and discovers the wonder that lies in the ordinary.

Praise for Molly & Pim and the Millions of Stars:

"Open-hearted and magical--an utter delight." --Rebecca Stead, author of When You Reach Me and Goodbye, Stranger

"A beautiful, magical story, full of surprises and brimming with wisdom." --Karen Foxlee, author of Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy
