Book sharing Monday:How to catch a star

We discovered this book two years ago and I am so glad we did.
I am absolutely in love with Oliver Jeffers' books. His stories and the illustrations are simple, yet beautiful.
This book tells the story of a boy who loves stars very much. He wishes he had a star of his own and there begins his adventure.
I wish all children could enter Jeffer's world and read his awesome books. Not only does my daughter enjoy his books but also I never tire of reading them ;)

From the book:

The boy tried to jump up and grab it.
But he could not jump high enough.
So very carefully,he climbed to the top of the tallest tree he could find.
But the star was still out of reach.
