From the blurb on the back:

This third book about the pioneer Tarrants in the King County, New Zealand, continues on from 'No one went to town' and 'Black Boots and Buttonhooks.' It is 1909, and May is eleven. Putting out a fire at school, rat hunting, and being caned by her teacher for for helping her friends in class are part of May's standard 4 year. In 1910, May sees Halley's comet , and also helps nurse her sick mother. May tries to get good marks in her standard 5 year at school, but because of a present she recieves all the standards get into trouble with their strict teacher. May's life is affected by the progress made on the bush farms of Piopio. May suddenly realises she is nearly grown up and must think about goint out to work.

'A Comet in the Sky' is a true story and was told to the author (May's daughter) by May and Phil.

FUN FACT: Queen Bead now lives in the same valley as May did in the first book in the Taranaki hill country!
