Oliver Jeffers discusses and signs "Here We Are"

Brentwood

Oliver Jeffers at DIESEL, A Bookstore in BrentwoodDIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood is pleased to welcome Oliver Jeffers to the store to discuss and sign his new picture book, Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth on Thursday, November 30th at 6:00 pm.

*Please note: The publisher has expressed that Oliver would be happy to sign his previous books though they are requiring everyone who gets in the signing line to purchase a copy of Here We Are from DIESEL, A Bookstore.

Insightfully sweet, with a gentle humor and poignancy, here is Oliver Jeffers' user's guide to life on Earth. He created it especially for his son, yet with a universality that embraces all children and their parents. Be it a complex view of our planet's terrain (bumpy, sharp, wet), a deep look at our place in space (it's big), or a guide to all of humanity (don't be fooled, we are all people), Oliver's signature wit and humor combine with a value system of kindness and tolerance to create a must-have book for parents.

Oliver Jeffers makes art and tells stories. His books include How to Catch a Star, Lost and Found, which was the recipient of the prestigious Nestle Children's Book Prize Gold Award in the U.K. and was later adapted into an award-winning animated film; and the New York Times bestsellers Stuck, This Moose Belongs to Me, and Once Upon an Alphabet. He is also, of course, the illustrator of the #1 smash hits The Day the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons Came Home, both written by Drew Daywalt. His fine art is world-renowned and his dip-art exhibitions are a much sought-after event. Originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, Oliver now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife and young son.
