Description

Perfect for gift-giving, a boxed set of three brilliant picture books by the illustrator of The Day the Crayons Quit, Oliver Jeffers
 
Ten years ago, Oliver Jeffers' first picture book, How to Catch a Star, featured an unnamed boy in a red-and-white striped shirt who captured the hearts of kids the world over. That same boy went on to be featured in three additional books, including Lost and Found and The Way Back Home, both of which became kid favorites as well. Now these three delightfully quirky picture books are available together for the first time, as mini, unjacketed hardcover editions, enclosed within a gorgeously designed die-cut slipcase.
 
The perfect gift for any holiday or special occasion, this gorgeous collection is a wonderful introduction to the #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator of The Day the Crayons Quit.
