A couple of years ago we discovered Oliver Jeffers and were immediately hooked! He became an instant favorite in our house as we read through his entire children’s collection. His characters are so intriguing and the stories are fun! Filled with imagination and real, sometimes intense, emotion. These are the books I love, the ones that make my littles giggle and ask questions while also tugging at my heartstrings in their deeply meaningful truths. Like The Heart and the Bottle which tells of the struggle between keeping your heart safe or using it with risk. Or The Incredible Book Eating Boy who was just going about his reading in the most unusual way. My babes can’t contain their amusement as the long chain of events in Stuck leads to the most whimsical site. Jeffers is the illustrator of our collective favorite The Day the Crayons Quit. Written with exquisite wit and humor by Drew Daywalt, this is the story of the many personalities and neurosis present in your far from average crayon box. A charming tale of individuality creatively portrayed in Jeffers’ illustrations. Word on the street is that the sequel, The Day the Crayons Came Home, is due out later this year. We. Are. Excited.
