Judi Abbot's 'Forever Star' is Out of This World… Literally!

There’s been a Plum first this week: the wonderful new book Forever Star, written by Gareth Peter and illustrated by our very own Plum Judi Abbot, was launched into space! T

Forever Star is a beautiful LGBTQ+ story that follows same-sex couple Tim and Tim as they set off around the galaxy to adopt their very own Star Child. In celebration of National Adoption Week (18th -23rd October), author Gareth got together with the folks at Send Into Space to give this heartfelt book the introduction to the world it deserves!
