How to Catch a Star
Written and Illustrated by Oliver Jeffers
Published by HarperCollins Children's Books
A truly beautiful book this. Oliver Jeffers' atmospheric and fantastic illustrations compliment the story of a young lad's quest to catch a star of his very own to cuddle and keep. Like other Jeffers books, the text is fairly simple but effective but the illustrations make it worthy of a place in anyone's toddler library. A feelgood book with a beautiful ending.
Charlotte's best bit: The ignorant seagull.
Daddy's favourite bit: The boy's spaceship, even though it has no petrol.
Rating: 5 out of 5
