The Comet by Joe Todd Stanton is about a little girl named Nyla who is forced to leave her home in the country to start life again in the city. When this occurs, all Nyla can think about is everything she misses from before.

So when a comet comes crashing through the city streets and starts growing into a forest, Nyla can't resist a chance to head somewhere that feels closer to what she had before ... but what starts as an escape could be just the thing to make her finally feel at home. 

A picture book touching on the stress and pain of moving house and how this effects our relationships and sense of belonging, but also how it can open us up to new experiences - seeing that although we might have to leave places and people we love behind; they never really leave us. We'll always have them in our memories and in the ability to make new ones.
