I knew straight away that this book was something special. Just from the cover you can tell that it is magical and imaginative. I must admit I have a soft spot for ships in space as Treasure Planet was one of my all time favourite movies as a kid. The kind you watch over and over and over again.
Once there was a boy and the boy loved stars very much. Every night the boy watched the stars from his window and wished he had one of his very own.
This is a story about a boy and a star by the super popular and incredibly clever – Mr Oliver Jeffers. It is actually my first ever Oliver Jeffers book and I completely understand why he is so super duper popular and publishing books all around the world – This book is beautiful and wonderful and really quite funny too. I enjoyed pretty much everything about it.
I have had such a run of great books to review in the last few weeks. This is up there with one of my favourites. It is another one that I first noticed floating around on instagram, and I should really start giving instagram more credit, because my gosh – this book is fantastic.
The cover is what initially drew me into this beauty.
A unicorn… maybe some rainbows… a little bubble helmet.
