I’ve written about my love of Oliver Jeffers’ books before, so I was excited to be offered the chance togiveaway a copy of his book. This year marks 10 years since How to Catch a Star was released, and to celebrate, HarperCollins have released a special anniversary edition. The 10th anniversary is edition features a letter from the author and illustrator, explaining where the concept for the book first came from.
We were given a copy of How to Catch a Star shortly after the birth of my daughter. It is a beautiful book, I really love the look and colours of the illustrations, and the story itself is lovely to read. Our copy has been well loved in the two short years we have owned it. It has been stood on, folded, and, very almost, peed on.
The book is aimed at 2-7 year olds, but I have been reading it to Ebony since she was a baby. We have amassed a few other Oliver Jeffers books since, but I think this one will always be my favourite.
HarperCollins very kindly sent us a copy of the 10th anniversary edition to review, along with some other promotional materials. We were sent some glow in the dark stars, which I am keeping hidden from my daughter until we move house, because it seems unfair to the new owners to leave them with a glow in the dark ceiling in their spare room. They also sent us some drawing sheets and activities which kept Ebony happily occupied for a little while one afternoon.
The 10th anniversary edition of How to Catch a Star is due to be released on 27 March, and can be pre-ordered here for just £10.27 (RRP £12.99).a Rafflecopter giveaway Win competitions at ThePrizeFinder.com
