About this deal

His outstanding talent has been recognised by several high-profile awards, including the Nestlé Children’s Book Prize Gold Award. It is an easy, quick read and I’d say Early years children would enjoy it mostly but it would also make a great book for young readers too. The children in my setting loved the story, they are big fans of the nursery rhyme Twinkle twinkle little star, so I knew they would be interested in this.

So one day, he decided to catch a star of his very own… From the shining talent of Oliver Jeffers, winner of the Bisto Award, this inspirational, glittering story captures the magic of reaching for dreams. This is a magical, beautifully illustrated tale about reaching for dreams… Adults tend to think of waiting as tedious, but the magic of this book is that it understands waiting as children wait – alert, apprehensive and using their imaginations.
