One of the joys of being a parent is in discovering and sharing books with your child. Both I and my daughter have been consistently charmed and delighted by the work of Oliver Jeffers. His books, including The Day The Crayons Quit, The Great Paper Caper and The Incredible Book Eating Boy, are beautifully illustrated but have a quirky, sideways view of the world which is surreal, amusing and thought-provoking.
Jeffers has recently become a Dad himself and his new book, Here We Are, is an introduction to Planet Earth for his own child.
