New Oliver Jeffers


This is Oliver Jeffers
So besides the fact that he’s unbelievably dreamy,he’s also my favourite picture book author and illustrator.
His books are always a hit in my story times and have a wide appeal for many ages including adults. When I saw this trailer for his new title which you can pre-order now and releases in June, I just had to share it.

                 This makes me happy. I can not wait to have this book in my collection.

His other titles: 
The Incredible Book Eating Boy Lost and Found  Stuck How to Catch a Star   Up and Down  The Great Paper Caper
