How to Catch a Star review and giveaway

A couple of weeks ago we were sent a lovely 10th Anniversary copy of Oliver Jeffers How to Catch a Star.  I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since this delightful book was published.  I remember my parents buying Luc a copy for his first birthday and it has been enjoyed over and over again over the years.     
We’ve now got a lovely collection of Oliver Jeffers books but How to Catch a Star has to be our favourite one.  Over the years the boys have added their own names to replace the boy in the story and have loved doing this.  I personally enjoy Oliver Jeffers lovely illustrations they are sort of innocent and the words of the story fit.  I can’t help but smile whenever I read this story to the boys and Erin.  The 10th Anniversary copy is a hardback book but contains all the charms that we have come to love. 
The story is about a little boy who loved stars so much that he decided he wanted one of his own.  The story follows the boy as he attempts to catch his very own star.  A story about determination, disappointments and achievements.  Oliver Jeffers captures the feelings so well with both the illustrations and the text.  
I hope we will continue to enjoy this lovely story for years to come.
