Update: have seen some more of this author's work for slightly older children and appreciate the illustrations and the quirky style a bit better now. I could see this as a good way to teach children about rather heavy subjects such as depression, anxiety, loss and mourning. Oliver Jeffers offers a simple, childlike tale of reaching for the stars, and emerging with a friend. Whenever my toddler wakes up from his afternoon nap in inconsolable tears, as he occasionally does for some mysterious reason, this book always immediately comforts him from the opening page.

Personally I wasn't sure about the illustrations, they're quite stylised, but this book has quickly become one of my son's favourites. After a few failed attempts, and just as he is ready to give up, he learns that sometimes things aren't where, or what, they seem.
