A review for How to Catch a Star...An inspirational story from internationally bestselling, multi-prize-winning picture book creator Oliver Jeffers. A little boy so loves the stars that he decides to set off and try to catch one. But catching a star is not as easy as it looks. It’s a captivating quest with a very satisfying ending.
The Good Book Guide Review. How to Catch a Star introduced the little boy who loved stars so much that he decided to catch one of his own. This boxed set contains this and three further stories about the boy – Lost and Found, The Way Back Home and Up and Down. (Ages 3-6)
