Reviews all around the world
I have been a long time fan of Oliver Jeffers and his stories about the boy. This is a great compilation of the stories that we have grown to love with some interesting extras from the author of how he came up with the stories. This would be great as a gift to introduce someone to this author as well as for anyone who loves the process of storytelling.
