10th Anniversary of Oliver Jeffers’ How to Catch a Star
Oliver Jeffers has won the New York Times Best Illustrated Books Award, Nestlé Smarties Book Prize, Irish Book of the Year and The Blue Peter Book of the Year.
Ten years on, How to Catch a Star’s beautiful illustrations and enchanting story continues to win the hearts of children aged 2-7, and is a humorous celebration of joyful ingenuity and the belief that anything is possible.
We were sent a copy and it is absolutely lovely. Freddy loved it and we read it over and over again, talking about the stars and whether we could really catch one! The simple style of the illustrations is so effective and the storytelling is full of warmth and gentle humour. How to Catch a Star is a lovely edition to any child's bookshelf. We also received some glow in the dark stars which Freddy absolutely adored. After reading the book we stuck them on his bedroom ceiling so he could watch them as he fell asleep. Some gorgeous activity sheets extended the How to Catch a Star experience. We also watched a video of Oliver Jeffers, who looks like a really cool guy! Overall, I think that How to Catch a Star has been elevated to the title of Freddy's new favourite book!
Out on the 27 March, How to Catch a Star is available from Amazon for £12.99
