Have I mentioned that I love EVERYTHING JEFFERS!! Well, I do. Recently, Non and I got the chance to meet Oliver Jeffers at the SCIBA Author Feast and Trade Show in Long Beach, California. It was fantastic! Jeffers spoke and presented a slide show about his life that was perfectly him and hilarious. It read like one of his picture books and the audience was enthralled. Afterward, Oliver Jeffers was kind enough to sign my iPhone case which has an image from another one of his books, Lost and Found.
We also received his newest book, Stuck!
Stuck is amazing! The book is about a boy named Floyd who gets his kite stuck in a tree. Well, naturally, Floyd throws his shoe into the tree to knock down the kite, then his other shoe to knock down his shoe, then Mitch the cat gets tossed up in order to get the shoe down, and, in proper Jeffers humor, Floyd fetches a ladder which he chucks into the tree to get Mitch out. The result is, as you would imagine, a whole lot of stuff stuck in a tree.
My new Giveaway Schmiveaway is a SIGNED copy of Oliver Jeffers’ book, The Way Back Home!!! It is a great book about two unlikely allies trying to find their way home.
