Once there was a boy and the boy loved stars very much. So much, in fact, that he decides he must have one of his own and sets out to catch one... Shortlisted for the 2004 Booktrust Early Years Award, this is a delightful picture book about the power of the imagination and the need for friendship, charmingly illustrated with Oliver Jeffers's quirky watercolour images.
