5.0 out of 5 stars fly me to the moon, 25 Jan. 2008
This review is from: How to Catch a Star (Paperback)
amongst one of the most beautiful contemporary children books i have read.
it is the innocent and very basic style in which children are encouraged to dream and reach out for the impossible and get motivated to fuel their imagination with creative thinking and alternative solutions to seemingly unachievable tasks. i consider it the very skill of a good children book to not mock or burst a bubble but offer a beautiful alternative to the unachievable. Oliver Jeffers always has a nice twist in his books and heartbreaking illustrations of the yearnings and hopes of his characters.
every child needs to read or be read a book like this. the only equivalent
i know is a book about a bear who wants to reach the moon. a book that is
decades old and whose title i cant currently recall- but it still sits in a box in the house i grew up in surrounded by other books that shaped the very me- why i think a good choice of book for your children is invaluable- and i believe this one is a very good choice that will hopefully get passed on to as many generations possible.
enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars as valuable for adults as for children, 4 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Lost and Found (Paperback)
i picked this up a little while ago while comfort shopping and because good children book illustrations always catch my eye. and it did the trick. it is a very touching little book on friendship that i believe will be a wonderful present or surprise to any child learning how to appreciate company or any adult who might be in need for a little reassurance about the good in our hearts. beautifully illustrated, quickly read and with a little twist in the plot that will get the kids hooked. the author's note is bound to bring a smile on the face of the most hardened parent, too:-)

enjoy.
