An inspirational story of a boy who loved the stars so much, he decided to catch one of his very own.And I don't think I would have been as lucky as finding someone "small and still curious about the world" like she had. A story about possibilities and disappointments with a triumphant ending, all of which Jeffers captures through the beautifully expressive changing moods of his little boy. He is also well known for his illustration and artwork, and his distinctive paintings have been exhibited in galleries worldwide. This is a magical, beautifully illustrated tale about reaching for dreams… Adults tend to think of waiting as tedious, but the magic of this book is that it understands waiting as children wait - alert, apprehensive and using their imaginations.

It has wonderful illustrations and text which both hold the attention of the children and from which they can follow independently after listening to the story. After a few failed attempts, and just as he is ready to give up, he learns that sometimes things aren't where, or what, they seem. It made me realise that while losing someone is, indeed, horrible but shutting yourself away in a protective shell doesn't help the situation nor is it something that person would ever want. From figurative painting, collage and installation to illustration and award winning picture-books, Oliver Jeffers practice takes many forms. An inspirational tale of reaching for the stars and emerging with a friend, this wonderful board book by Oliver Jeffers would make the perfect gift for either the newborn, or an older sibling.The beautiful child-like innocence and awe we used to have is something he perfectly portrays in his writing and illustrations.

It is an easy, quick read and I’d say Early years children would enjoy it mostly but it would also make a great book for young readers too.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Looking forward to getting some more books by this author for my little boy to enjoy when he's a little older. The children in my setting loved the story, they are big fans of the nursery rhyme Twinkle twinkle little star, so I knew they would be interested in this.

In 2013, Jeffers illustrated the vinyl cover (a drawing of Nelson Mandela) for the U2 song "Ordinary Love".Every night he watched the stars in the sky from his bedroom window and dreamed of how he could be their friend and how they could play hide-and-go-seek together.
