“Jeffers’s illustrations delight, inspire and surprise with their variety and ingenuity”
Born in Australia, brought up in Northern Ireland and now living in New York, Oliver Jeffers’ work takes many forms. His distinctive paintings have been exhibited all over the world. Oliver’s picture books have been translated into over 30 languages and include Lost & Found, Stuck, The Hueys, The Incredible Book Eating Boy, The Great Paper Caper, This Moose Belongs to Me, The Day the Crayons Quit written by Drew Daywalt, and his most recent book Once Upon an Alphabet. He won an Emmy in 2010 for his collaborative work with MacPremo, with whom he co-directed the U2 video Ordinary Love in 2013. For a unique insight into his life and work, join him for a whistle-stop tour around the world of Oliver Jeffers.
