ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- If you're a fan of Neil Gaiman's other books then you'll love this one. Stardust is filled with wonder, magic, witches, sky pirates and fallen stars. This charming story of self discovery even with its darker elements is a marvellously enjoyable fairytale that I love from beginning to end. Mary O'Sullivan


Life moves at a leisurely pace in the tiny town of Wall - named after the imposing stone barrier which separates the town from a grassy meadow. Here, young Tristran Thorn has lost his heart to the beautiful Victoria Forester and for the coveted prize of her hand, Tristran vows to retrieve a fallen star and deliver it to his beloved. It is an oath that sends him over the ancient wall and into a world that is dangerous and strange beyond imagining...
