These books are written under the pseudonym Cathy West.

Combining non-fiction and fiction in one book, the Star Struck series appeals to both boys and girls. The fiction stories are accompanied by full colour illustrations with ‘speech bubble’ comic format text, offering the complete story at two reading levels.

The books can be used to inspire workshops on making a class fashion magazine, writing comic strips or making their own non-fiction books, ideal to support learning during Non-Fiction November.
