Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this book I LOVE this book! Oh, and my kids (ages 3 and 2) love it as well. It is one book that I don't mind reading over and over again. Very well written and easy to read with lots of enthusiasm and the pictures are great too. Highly recommend this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Adorable This is a cute book about a little boy who decides that he wants to catch a star of his very own. My favourite lines: "He dreamed how this star might be his friend. They would play hide-and-go-seek..." "He thought he could fly up in his spaceship and just grab the star. But his spaceship had run out of petrol last Tuesday when he flew to the moon." - which makes complete sense if you ask me. The complete acceptance that one can indeed catch a star and succeed, is what makes Oliver Jeffers' books so wonderful. I recommend this as a great bedtime story or for any kid who loves to dream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful pictures, wonderful story I came across this book and was drawn in by the illustrations (no pun intended!). I went back to the store 3 times to look at the book because I just couldn't get the images out of my mind. As it turns out, the story is just as good as the pictures. I love reading this book to my 7 month old son and he seems to be quite captivated by the pictures as well. I am sure this is a book we will continue to enjoy reading together as a family...maybe he'll even read it to us one day!
