Once upon a poet in any city of tall buildings. The poet looked higher, at the starry night, and wanting it so much, he achieved the impossible: he took possession of a star. He hid it in his house as best he could, but its pulsating brightness gave him away... Pablo Neruda's beautiful ode takes on special significance framed in a picture book where the verses dialogue with the serene illustrations by Elena Odriozola. The poetic images, which will awaken their own resonance in each reader, suggest the need to aspire to dreams and manage to contrast the mediocre narrowness of urban life against the freedom that can be found in nature.
