Oliver Jeffers, funny guy

Here’s a great little video about Oliver Jeffers, creator of many picture books such as Lost and Found. It’s entertaining but also gives a glimpse into what goes into the making of a children’s picture book.

Charming video, and yet… I can’t wait until filmmakers stop doing all those distracting out/in focus pulls. (In the good old days camera operators checked the focus before starting to shoot!)

You can check out his website here.

    Thank you so much for sharing this video! I love the Oliver Jeffers’ picture books (to be honest, I love them more than most children seem to…)

      Yes, I remember picking up Lost and Found for the first time and finding it so, so beautiful and sad. (I was glad it had a happy ending, for my daughter’s sake!)
