Oliver Jeffers is cooler than, well, almost everyone
June slipped home the other day with yet another book for Zo. She grabbed Oliver Jeffers latest, "The Great Paper Caper", and surprised both Zoey and I. Oliver has published some beauties. How to Catch a Star debuted in 2004 to critical acclaim, and Lost and Found (2005), won the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize Gold Medal 2006, the Blue Peter Book Award 2006 and was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal the same year. The Incredible Book Eating Boy (2007) won the Irish Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year, and his fourth Book The Way Back Home was released in September 2007 and The Great Paper Caper just came out and to no surprise found it's way into out living room. We loves us some good books and Oliver Jeffers is a great place to start.
If you've never heard of Mr. Jeffers or, in an even worse case scenario, read any of his books then drag your bottom over here and buy some before your head explodes.
