I have to admit to not knowing this book, when How to Catch a Star was originally published 10 years ago, I was leading a very different life, and Monkey wasn’t even on the agenda! But now things are very different, I have a 4 year old book-worm, who loves rockets and stars! So it was definitely time for us to become acquainted with How to Catch a Star and Oliver Jeffers.
As soon as he saw the cover he was off in search of his favourite rocket , which looks very similar! Look Mummy!
We sat down to read How to Catch a Star for the first time. We meet a little boy who is captivated by the stars in the night sky. He wanted so much to have a star of his own, how could he catch one?
Monkey was captivated by this story, how do you catch a star Mummy? Shall we read on? For a little boy who would love to visit the moon, this book poses some serious questions! How to Catch a Star is a really lovely tale, about a subject that has probably fascinated us all as children. Jeffers’ illustrations are so simple, but so effective. We both loved this book, we’re now off in search of others by this author. How have I not discovered him before? Did the little boy catch his star? You know I never reveal the ending!
