I'll catch you if you fall
I'll catch you if you fall
Sperring, Mark2015
A little boy is fishing from the edge of the boat, leaning out with his net. Who will keep him safe? His mother comes into the frame. Then the captain of the boat. And finally the guiding star in a sky that is becoming increasingly stormy. The star steadfastly steers the boat through the storm back into the harbour. Everyone is restored to the safety of home. But then we return to the sky where the star remains, all alone. Who will keep the star safe? It's the little boy, now in his bedroom, still holding his net. He watches the star and he's ready to catch it, should it fall. This is an unashamedly lyrical book. It has few words but they are powerful and, along with beautiful watercolour illustrations, they will speak volumes to children and their parents.
