There once was a boy… and the boy loved stars very much… So much so that he decided to catch one of his very own.
Waiting for them to grow tired from being up in the sky all night doesn't work. Climbing to the top of the tallest tree? No, not tall enough.
The boy has a rocket ship . . . but it is made of paper and doesn't fly well at all.
Finally, just when the boy is ready to give up, he learns that sometimes things aren't where, or what, we expect them to be.
The publication of How to Catch a Star in 2004 heralded the arrival of a captivating new talent on the picture book scene. Now beloved by children all over the world, the book has achieved huge critical success. Oliver and HarperCollins are proud to mark the anniversary in style with this exquisite gift edition, including a letter from the author and previously unpublished drawings - a book that no Oliver Jeffers fan will want to be without!
