Curly Girl was certainly intrigued when I gave her the box...
We read the story together and she absolutely loved it. 'I wish I had a star as my special friend', she said. She particularly liked the part in the story where the little boy can't use his rocket ship to catch the star as it's run out of petrol *chuckles*. We received some glow-in-the-dark stars along with the book and I fixed them to the ceiling where they glowed softly when I switched the lights off. Curly Girl immediately jumped up to try and catch one and we chatted about the different ways she could try to catch a real star.
This really is a lovely book and one that I know we'll be reading again and again before passing onto Little Man so he can have his very own star-catching adventures.
And after watching this film about Oliver Jeffers, I'm now a HEEWGE fan of his too...how lucky is he to do what he loves every day?
