A young boy stares into the sky at awe of the stars above and exams of, one day, catching one of his own…
If only he hadn’t run out of rocket fuel last week he could have flown past one and grabbed it.
If only he could life his father’s boat’s life belt, then he could lasso a star and pull it down.
If only a star would get tired from being in the star all night long then he could simply wait for one to drop.
If only he could climb a high tree and reach out and grab one.
This is a simple, beautiful and odd story told well… One of Oliver Jeffer’s greatest skills.
A great tale of wonder, awe, patience and hope that anything is possible.
