  1. Pippi Langstrumpf

  2. David Cameron, but just for two seconds, so I could give myself a slap.

    Kind of like in the “You’ve been Tangoed” ad.

  3. it seems appropriate that the person who wrote “ramona quimby” actually has a zit on her. :P

  4. I love that you can tell which one is Oliver himself just from the handwriting. And what a perfect answer. And I’d be Matilda, by the way.

  5. Pierre! (from Pierre: A Cautionary Tale in Five Chapters & a Prologue.

  10. Wow, Oliver Jeffers! :D I love his books! I gave “The Incredible Book-Eating Boy” as a gift to my godchild and she loved it too! I wish I was there! :)

  11. I like the “Ramona Quimby” handwriting.

  12. Oh – Barbamama is such as great idea! You would never have transportation problems ever again (can you tell I come from a part of the world where we have been affected by the Icelandic ash-cloud?:-))

  13. i’m absolutely gutted that i missed this! i so love oliver jeffers’ books. i have gifted ‘lost and found’ to every child i know…it’s a perfect story and the illustration is imaginative and beautiful. but thanks so much for featuring such a talented artist and writer. glad to know that his prints are for sale too.

  14. aww Little prince, kudos Daniel!

  15. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be really something that I feel I would by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very extensive for me. I am looking forward in your next put up, I will try to get the grasp of it!
