Oliver Jeffers…

Oliverjeffers

I officially have a new favorite kid’s book author: Oliver Jeffers. My wonderful office mate Jennifer brought in a stack of his books and they keep me from focusing on work… (Must read. Must flip through pages. Must read again!) Lost and Found totally has me smile. Ella, being a huge penguin lover, would love the story. Also, “How To Catch A Star” looks fantastic. And the “The Incredible Book Eating Boy“, you simply can’t top. I just put Oliver Jeffers’ on my list of people I’d like to have ‘coffee with someday’. What a talent!

  1. thanks, swissmiss, for the preschooler book tips. I bought “the book eating boy” on your recommendation for my kiddos. we love the missing “bite” out of the back of the book.

  2. I’ve been an avid reader of this blog for ages, but this post prompted me out of my commenting silence. I LOVE Oliver Jeffers work.. The Incredible Book Eating Boy is a favourite of my eldest son. Seeing you feature his work here is bitter-sweet since I am in Munich (for work) right now and my kids are at home in Australia.

    Swissmiss… you’ve done it again! Your taste is impeccable.

  3. The Incredible Book Eating Boy is one of my absolute favourites! Jeffers work is a wonderful :)

  4. I didn’t even think to look for more Oliver Jeffers books! We have Lost and Found and it’s simply wonderful. If Ella likes penguins for sure she will love this one.

  5. Nous les avons tous !!! La “Soupe de l’Espace” est fan :) BRAVO Oliver Jeffers ! Vivement les prochains…

  10. We love Oliver Jeffers – Lost and Found is my childrens’ favourite!
    What a coincidence that we’re GIVING AWAY a copy on Babyccino this week, signed by the handsome author himself (and 4 more GREAT books)!
