Oliver Jeffers, arguably the most influential creator of picture books today, offers a rare personal look inside his own hopes and expectations for his child—and in doing so gifts children and parents everywhere with a gently sweet and humorous missive about our world and those who call it home.
Insightfully sweet, with a gentle humor and poignancy, here is Oliver Jeffers’ user’s guide to life on Earth. He created it specially 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 (you are here), or a guide to all of the animals (they don’t speak our language, but that’s no reason to be mean to them), Oliver’s signature wit and humor combine with a value system of kindness and tolerance to create a must-have book for parents.
