Celebrate the 10th anniversary of How to Catch a Star with this new toddler-friendly board book edition!

An inspirational story from internationally bestselling, multi-prize-winning picture book creator Oliver Jeffers.

Once there 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…

Publisher Review

"...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 "Hail to new talent... If only all picture books could be this good" The Bookseller
