As if there weren’t enough reasons to love Oliver Jeffers (author + illustrator of some of our favorite books of all time), I have just discovered THIS. It’s a fascinating 3 minute movie on how he comes up with his book ideas. This is one creative (and cute) Irishman. In college, I spent a semester trying to write children’s books (not as easy at it seems). This video has inspired me to go and dig them out!
This Spring, May 4th to be exact, Oliver Jeffers will be at the MoMa Design Store at 81 Spring Street in NYC. I am definitely bringing my kids to meet Oliver. In fact, after watching Oliver’s video, my son asked for a journal so he could start writing down his thoughts and ideas. Melt my heart!
