My son really enjoys reading the book, though, and he'll ask us to read it several times in the same day. It's definitely a fun story.
The front cover features dozens of irridescent, hologram-like stars that sparkle in a rainbow of colors. Thomas and the Shooting Star has 13 colorful pages with vibrant illustrations. Thomas and the Shooting Star tells the story of Thomas, who is having trouble falling asleep. He complains to Gordon, and Thomas spots something bright streaking through the sky. "What was *that*?" he asks Gordon.
Gordon replies "a shooting star" and gets the idea to play a joke on Thomas: he'll tell him that a shooting star runs through the sky telling the other stars how to get to sleep. Gordon urges Thomas to try to catch up with the shooting star, so it can tell Thomas how to fall asleep!
Thomas encounters a few of his friends on his nighttime excursion, and lo and behold--chasing the star *does* make him sleepy!
This delightful hardcover book is a favorite of my son's, and the best Thomas book there is, in my opinion. (My guess is that Britt Allcroft didn't write it...although her production company is listed as the creator).
The message is subtle enough to share without belaboring the point. The illustrations are very nice and I like both the pacing and the length of the story (as one other reviewer said, the book is the perfect length for a bedtime story).
We own a number of Thomas books (check my other reviews). This is one of the better stories we've come across.
