When You Wish Upon a Star by Ned Washington (Book and Audio CD)
A unique offering of a book and CD recorded by Judy Collins, featuring the classic theme: when you wish upon a star, your dreams come true.
Grammy award-winning singer Judy Collins and illustrator Eric Puybaret, who together created the New York Times best-selling version of Over the Rainbow, are collaborating once again to bring a classic song to life.
Written by Leigh Harline and Ned Washington in 1940, the Academy Award-winning When You Wish Upon a Star is beloved by listeners from 2 to 92 for its sweet hopefulness, poignant melody, and simple yet profound lyrics. No singer can capture the haunting beauty of this classic like Judy Collins, with her clear, pure, and emotionally resonant voice.
Eric Puybaret's captivating art, with its graceful lines, stunning use of color, and strong sense of fantasy, is the perfect complement to Collins' lovely interpretation.
Like OVER THE RAINBOW, this deluxe picture book features the highest-quality production values, making it a volume to treasure forever.

"When You Wish Upon a Star by Ned Washington, Leigh Harline and Eric Puybaret is a beautiful illustrated book of the classic song. The book is filled with beautiful illustrations featuring multicultural children from all over the world and my class enjoyed seeing kids who looked like them in the illustrations. The song is included on a CD sung by Judy Collins and although the song is beautifully performed it was a bit classical for my students who said that they would rather that I sang them the song instead of playing the CD (and normally they're excited to hear CD's because they hear me sing every day).
This is a book that can be enjoyed by kids of all ages in a classroom format and kids 4-8 who are reading independently."
"Excellent book on this classic song. The illustrations are amazing, magical and whimsical. The songs on the CD are beautiful and add something extra to the book.
