Description

An inspirational tale of reaching for the stars and emerging with a friend, this wonderful board book by Oliver Jeffers would make the perfect gift for either the newborn, or an older sibling. And I don't think I would have been as lucky as finding someone "small and still curious about the world" like she had. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. I could see this as a good way to teach children about rather heavy subjects such as depression, anxiety, loss and mourning.

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. 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. He is also well known for his illustration and artwork, and his distinctive paintings have been exhibited in galleries worldwide.Finally, just when the boy is ready to give up, he learns that sometimes things aren't where, or what, we expect them to be. We use cookies to personalise content and ads, to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic. From figurative painting, collage and installation to illustration and award winning picture-books, Oliver Jeffers practice takes many forms. It is an easy, quick read and I’d say Early years children would enjoy it mostly but it would also make a great book for young readers too.

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. The beautiful child-like innocence and awe we used to have is something he perfectly portrays in his writing and illustrations. This is a magical, beautifully illustrated tale about reaching for dreams… Adults tend to think of waiting as tedious, but the magic of this book is that it understands waiting as children wait - alert, apprehensive and using their imaginations.
