Includes a note from the author

It is often said that life is a journey, and it's true. But sometimes it's hard to know which path to follow when signs point in so many directions. In this beautifully illustrated book, Peter H. Reynolds once again encourages readers to observe, to wonder, and to consider diverging from the well-worn path -- to pursue their dreams. Originally published more than ten years ago, THE NORTH STAR has had a profound effect on its many readers. This edition, featuring all new art, celebrates the book's own voyage connecting people around the world. It has inspired classroom activities, a musical, and countless thoughtful journeys.
