    Great illustrations as always Lovely story line but could ve done with a littledepth Although, I think the one thing we can take from it is that you can wait for a long time, try and try again but fail However, what you were looking for was right under your nose the whole time.

    A story about a boy who doesn t give up on his ambition to catch a star, even when it seems unlikely As I read this book, I wished I had done so long ago I thought of several pupils who I taught on placement that needed motivation to continue working hard, this would have shown them the importance of perseverance in a fun way

    This book would be good to read to children in KS1 and year 3, it encourages creative thinking they could think of and discuss how they might catch a star themselves It could also be used to spark an interest in space and be used to introduce the topic of space There are also colourful illustrations which show the boy s ideas as well as time of day and how the ideas might and might not work.

    A fun read with beautiful illustrations as usual by Jeffers about a boy who wants to catch a star Particularly good if your child currently has a space rocket obsession
