What comes first, the words or the pictures? When does he get his ideas? Why does he make picture books? How does he get started? What tools does he use? And, most importantly, what does he have for lunch? Oliver Jeffers, the talented and charming creator of How to Catch a Star, The Heart and The Bottle, The Great Paper Caper, and The Hueys shares all this and more in his new author film.

    Oliver Jeffers. A bit of a genius. The Great Paper Caper was highly re-readable and fun. I have read it to kidlets and adults both.

  3. Oh so refreshing, bubbly, fun and full of peps. A master in keeping his inner kiddie alive and kicking….
