Praise for ‘Lost and Found’:

‘An uplifting story…pictures of such spare beauty…suffused with a dreamlike quality.’ Independent Online

‘Oliver Jeffers makes impressive use of space in this affecting story of friendship…illustrations capture feelings of loss and loneliness through the most delicate nuances of facial expression…and body language.’ Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian

Praise for ‘How to Catch a Star’:

‘The best recent picture book by light years… stylishly spellbinding.’ Telegraph

‘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 Guardian
