Oliver Jeffers Roundup


Oliver Jeffers is one talented super-artist. I am crazy about his picture books. His style is so refined looking, modern and muted. And gosh darn it, the man knows how to write a sweet story. I defy you to read Lost and Found and not want to cuddle up to the first penguin who shows up on your doorstep. I’ve come across several Jeffers-inspired items in the kidlitosphere lately, so here are all of those treats together, in one handy roundup:

Guardian feature on Oliver Jeffers
Just One More Book’s podcast on The Way Back Home
Lots more Oliver Jeffers-related goodies at Just One More Book
StudioAKA’s gorgeous collection of stills from the short film version of Lost and Found. You’ll find the trailer there too.

There’s a hearty dose of sweetness for a freezing Sunday morning.

    I’m so happy to find another who loves Oliver Jeffers! The grade 1’s just loved Lost and Found and grade 4 were fascinated by the Incredible Book Eating Boy.

    BTW, every time I come here to read your posts and nearly die of jealousy over that gorgeous banner!
