From the Publisher:
Once there was a boy, and that boy loved stars very much. So much so that he decided to catch one of his very own. But how? Waiting for them to grow tired from being up in the sky all night doesn't work. Climbing to the top of the tallest tree? No, not tall enough. The boy has a rocket ship . . . but it is made of paper and doesn't fly well at all. Finally, just when the boy is ready to give up, he learns that sometimes things aren't where, or what, we expect them to be.

First-time author/illustrator Oliver Jeffers offers a simple, childlike tale of reaching for the stars, and emerging with a friend.

A little boy who loves stars longs to have a star for his special friend. Clad in a festive red-and-white striped shirt, the boy decides to wait for a star to get tired and fall from the sky. When this doesn't work, he thinks climbing a tree might help, but that fails, too. Then his luck changes--and in the most surprising fashion! With lovely, rich watercolor illustrations.
