"A story about friendship, family and finding your way in the world--this book truly shines!" -- Jen Calonita, author of the Fairytale Reform School series

"Haring and Connolly have crafted an inviting fantasy that combines the epic feel of a creation myth with plenty of monsters to fight and monumental wrongs to right... this handsome volume is adorned with plenty of spot art and striking, full-page illustrations and is likely to draw in younger middle-grade readers as well as tween fantasy lovers." -- Shelf Awareness
"A wonderous celestial fable" -- Kirkus Reviews
"Uplifting and inviting from beginning to end, The Star Shepherd is a fantasy that's focused on kindness, courage, and constellations of possibilities." -- ForeWord
"An engaging entrée into fantasy, helped along by striking black-and-white illustrations and a satisfactory ending." -- Publishers Weekly

"Readers will relish this fantasy with high suspense and clever plot twists. Loyalty, friendship, parent/child relationships, good vs. evil, and quests are all addressed." -- School Library Connection

"A story that lives somewhere between fairy tale and epic fantasy...will work for younger readers making their first forays into fantasy" -- Booklist

"A pleasant steampunk-esque fantasy that should do well in larger collections." -- School Library Journal
