Peterkin Meets a Star is about a little boy that finds a star in the sky and wants to take it home. He climbs up in a tree and pulls the star out of the sky and tucks it under his arm. The star twinkles in the sky but once it has been taken home with Peterkin, it begins to grow dimmer. Soon the star is sick and the little boy tries to give it soup and rest. When this isn't enough to revive the star, the boy decides to get it some 'fresh air'. Of course, being outside helps the star feel better. Then Peterkin decides to climb back up in his tree and return the star to it's place in the sky. The star twinkles happily again.
