Meet Picture Book Creator Oliver Jeffers
Oliver's picture books for children include the New York Times bestseller Stuck. The official World Book Day illustrator in 2007, How to Catch a Star debuted in 2004 to critical acclaim, and Lost and Found, published in 2005, won the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize Gold Medal 2006, the Blue Peter Book Award 2006 and was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal the same year. The Incredible Book Eating Boy (2007) won the Irish Book Awards Children’s Book of the Year.
Jeffers’ style of illustration uses mixed medium and is recognised for its subtle narrative and use of space in composition. As a freelance illustrator he has worked for clients such as Orange UK, Lavazza, Sony PSP, RCA Records, The Guardian, Creative Review and The Telegraph.
