Product Description
Celebrate the 20th anniversary of world-renowned illustrator Oliver Jeffers’s debut picture book, the much-loved How to Catch a Star!
There once was a boy who loved stars so much that he wished he had one of his very own. Every night he watched the stars in the sky from his bedroom window and dreamed of how he could be their friend and how they could play hide-and-go-seek together.

So, one day, he decided to set about catching a star of his very own…

The publication of How to Catch a Star in 2004 heralded the arrival of a captivating new talent on the picture book scene. Twenty years later the magical story of the boy and the star continues to inspire readers around the world.

A beautiful new edition to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this phenomenally popular modern classic!

“If only all picture books could be this good" Bookseller
Industry Reviews
"!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 "If the title sounds magical and optimistic to you, it's probably because that's exactly what this book is" Junior (BOOK OF THE MONTH) "A stunning debut!" Books for Keeps (NEW TALENT) " How To Catch A Star is a beautiful debut picture book from an extremely talented and innovative illustrator. This is a fantastic story which teaches children that if you wish hard enough your dreams just may come true" The Bookseller "Hail to new talent! If only all picture books could be this good" The Bookseller
