He is also well known for his illustration and artwork, and his distinctive paintings have been exhibited in galleries worldwide. After a few failed attempts, and just as he is ready to give up, he learns that sometimes things aren't where, or what, they seem.

When my mum and/or dad dies, I'll be sure to not put my heart in a bottle and will, instead, accept those feelings of loss and pain. I will get through it, and when I do, I'll make sure to treasure every memory I have of them and tell myself that they are not truly dead, because they'll live long in the memories I have of them.

His books include How to Catch a Star; Lost and Found , which was the recipient of the prestigious Nestle Children's Book Prize Gold Award in the U. His distinctive paintings have been exhibited in multiple cities, including the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Brooklyn Museum New York.

Oliver Jeffers offers a simple, childlike tale of reaching for the stars, and emerging with a friend. Celebrate the 10th anniversary of How to Catch a Star with this new toddler-friendly board book edition!Not sure how to explain it best: the prose is so nicely paced and there's a really good ratio of illustrations to words (more pictures than words), yet there's still a proper narrative to the book. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. A story about possibilities and disappointments with a triumphant ending, all of which Jeffers captures through the beautifully expressive changing moods of his little boy. His outstanding talent has been recognised by several high-profile awards, including the Nestlé Children’s Book Prize Gold Award. Every night he watched the stars in the sky from his bedroom window and dreamed of how he could be their friend and how they could play hide-and-go-seek together.

The children in my setting loved the story, they are big fans of the nursery rhyme Twinkle twinkle little star, so I knew they would be interested in this. It made me realise that while losing someone is, indeed, horrible but shutting yourself away in a protective shell doesn't help the situation nor is it something that person would ever want. An inspirational story from internationally bestselling, multi-prize-winning picture book creator Oliver Jeffers. It has wonderful illustrations and text which both hold the attention of the children and from which they can follow independently after listening to the story.We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners.
