During February half term (2018), I went with my family to Abu Dhabi. On one of the days we went to see the new Louvre museum. There are only two in the world – one in Paris, France and the other in Abu Dhabi. I was amazed by the architecture which reminded me of stars.
This story begins with a little boy who loves stars (just like me). His dream was to have his very own star. The boy did many things to try and catch a star such as climb the tallest tree he could find and ask a seagull if he could fly to catch it.
The boy tried as hard as he could everyday but unfortunately the boy could not get or reach a star. Finally one day the boy went to the beach and spotted a star floating in the water. He tried to reach it but it was too far away because it wasn’t a real star, it was a reflection. The story ends with the boy not finding a real star but at least he found a starfish and was very excited.
Sebastian told me when I read this book that it reminded him of the sea. When I was younger, this was one of my favourite books.
