How to Catch a Star (2004) written and illustrated by Oliver Jeffers is a charming fable about stars and finding friends. It begins, “Once there was a boy and the boy loved stars very much.” It reminded me a lot of James Thurber‘s classic, Many Moons. The illustrations are slyly humorous and I would be happy to read it aloud a hundred times, if need be.
