Up and Down by Oliver Jeffers
Up and Down by Oliver Jeffers has been one of my most exciting discoveries of late. I am so happy to have found a new author/illustrator to love. This is a wonderful sequel to another sweet story Lost and Found. I love the illustrations and the simpleness of both stories. It is because of books like these that I wish I were still a buyer. I would have loved to have discovered Mr Jeffers before anyone else. His illustrations are the kind that give me that ache in my heart when I look at them. He is very talented and inspiring. He knows how to bring story and art together in a truly magical way. These are great books to read to children as both the adult and child will get something out them. A definite must have for any child's library!
