Oliver Jeffers books and video

Our family loves Oliver Jeffers' books, especially the books about the boy and his penguin (Lost and Found, Up and Down, The Way Back Home and How to Catch a Star).  After watching this video, I think I may enjoy work by this author even more (though I may have been influenced by his humour and his Irish accent, but who is keeping track of such things?).

If Oliver Jeffers is unknown to you, I recommend starting with Lost and Found. It is where we started, and we love it to this day.


  1. Junior and I have enjoyed a few Oliver Jeffers books - I never realized he is from Northern Ireland. I will have to seek out some more - thanks for sharing. By the way did the girls get an Alison Lester book for Chritmas. I ordered one but wasn't sure it if would make it to you in time.

  2. We did! Thank you! The last of our (belated) Christmas thank you notes will hit the post box by the end of this week. I'm sorry to say yours is in that mix. The girls were thrilled to receive a prezzie from your boys!
