I recently discovered Oliver Jeffers and I am totally smitten with his work. Every page of his books could be torn out and framed. I love the fact that he not only writes, but illustrates his books. To him the word and pictures are so intertwined he could not separate them from each other. He has written several children's book including the Incredible Book Eating Boy and The Great Paper Caper. If you have children you should run out and buy them all, even if you don't you should buy them anyway because who doesn't like a good bedtime story?
