Description

Oliver Jeffers offers a simple, childlike tale of reaching for the stars, and emerging with a friend. Personally I wasn't sure about the illustrations, they're quite stylised, but this book has quickly become one of my son's favourites. We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners. The children in my setting loved the story, they are big fans of the nursery rhyme Twinkle twinkle little star, so I knew they would be interested in this.

An inspirational tale of reaching for the stars and emerging with a friend, this wonderful board book by Oliver Jeffers would make the perfect gift for either the newborn, or an older sibling. Once there was a boy who loved stars so much that he decided he wanted to catch one of his very own. An inspirational story of a boy who loved the stars so much, he decided to catch one of his very own. 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.These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. When my mum and/or dad dies, I'll be sure to not put my heart in a bottle and will, instead, accept those feelings of loss and pain. He is also well known for his illustration and artwork, and his distinctive paintings have been exhibited in galleries worldwide. The beautiful child-like innocence and awe we used to have is something he perfectly portrays in his writing and illustrations. It is an easy, quick read and I’d say Early years children would enjoy it mostly but it would also make a great book for young readers too.

Not sure how to explain it best: the prose is so nicely paced and there's a really good ratio of illustrations to words (more pictures than words), yet there's still a proper narrative to the book. I could see this as a good way to teach children about rather heavy subjects such as depression, anxiety, loss and mourning.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. Oliver Jeffers is known for his award-winning picture books, which have been translated into over 30 languages. Update: have seen some more of this author's work for slightly older children and appreciate the illustrations and the quirky style a bit better now. And I don't think I would have been as lucky as finding someone "small and still curious about the world" like she had. It made me realise that while losing someone is, indeed, horrible but shutting yourself away in a protective shell doesn't help the situation nor is it something that person would ever want.

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.

Whenever my toddler wakes up from his afternoon nap in inconsolable tears, as he occasionally does for some mysterious reason, this book always immediately comforts him from the opening page. His outstanding talent has been recognised by several high-profile awards, including the Nestlé Children’s Book Prize Gold Award. He has made art for Newsweek, The New York Times, United Airlines, TED, Nintendo, and has illustrated a a number of novels.

From figurative painting, collage and installation to illustration and award winning picture-books, Oliver Jeffers practice takes many forms. After a few failed attempts, and just as he is ready to give up, he learns that sometimes things aren't where, or what, they seem. Looking forward to getting some more books by this author for my little boy to enjoy when he's a little older.
