Product description

Review

“…the best recent picture book by light years, is stylishly spellbinding” Telegraph

“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.” Guardian

“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.” Mail on Sunday

“Hail to new talent… If only all picture books could be this good" The Bookseller

5.0 out of 5 stars Super book!
By Anuradha Gupta on 30 May 2020
How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers was the first book that I introduced to toddler T featuring the Boy, not knowing whether she would like it or not. Since I had introduced it earlier than the age I have recommended below, it took a while before she finally took to the book. It later became a favorite for some time and she asked for it by its name. Even though she has given it a break for now (Thank God!) and we have moved to other books, I am sure she will come back to it soon.

The Boy is looking at the stars from his bedroom window and the only thing he wants right now is to have one of his own. Trying his best to reach the star and catch it, the story follows him as he spends an entire day looking for a star that doesn’t seem to be appearing. Will he catch a star?

WHAT WE LIKED
Full paged and childish illustrations, apt for beginners to identify things.
Short sentences, easy to read, explain, and understand.
Fun story giving multiple morals subtly.

WHAT WE DISLIKED the impracticality of the actions of the boy (from an adult point of view) though if you view them as a child, you’ll find them perfectly fine.

A fine story for a young toddler to read. Published by HarperCollins Children’s Books. Recommended age 2+ years.
