Description

“Hope is keeping a light on, however dark things seem.” 

Comet is Finn’s dog, and his very best friend. They do everything together. But one day Comet won’t get out of his basket - not even for his very favourite things! The vet tells Finn that Comet needs to stay in overnight for an operation. That evening, Finn sits in his den feeling very alone. Dad tells him to keep on hoping. At night, as Finn sleeps, thousand of little lights appear in the sky, each one a hope from a different person in the world.

Emotional, funny and uplifting, this beautiful picture book is a pure delight from start to finish. A wonderful story that shows children not to give up hope when times are uncertain.
