Rated 5 out of 5 by from How to catch a modern classic I am a mother of two and I now collect all of Oliver Jeffers books for them - this was our first book by Jeffers and we fell in love. His wildly creative storytelling and whimsical art work are masterful in their simplicity and addictive in their oddness. My kids giggle at the tales and so do I. His "little boy" series is wonderful and should all be collected. I often give them as gifts to spread the joy around amongst my friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charming and delightful A lovely little story that never seems to get old. My 3-year-old son and I love to read the board-book version. We're actually read it so often, it's starting to fall apart. Beautiful illustrations, quirky characters, and a charming story. Be sure to read the other adventures of the boy and the penguin. They're all wonderful.

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!
