Mr. Jeffers has just posted this delightful video on his picturebook process and how his words and pictures come together. As many of you know, the app of Oliver Jeffers’ The Heart and the Bottle inspired me to choose the picturebook app as my thesis topic. It also led me to the rest of his wonderful books. My current favourite is the pop-up version of The Incredible Book Eating Boy.
Oliver Jeffers will be in Vancouver speaking at a breakfast event at the University Golf Club put on by the Vancouver Children’s Literature Roundtable on February 23rd. Be sure to buy your ticket before this lovely event sells out. Register and pay online here.
