About this deal

A wonderful book, beautiful illustrations and my 2 year old insists on it being read every night before he goes to bed. Personally I wasn't sure about the illustrations, they're quite stylised, but this book has quickly become one of my son's favourites. When my mum and/or dad dies, I'll be sure to not put my heart in a bottle and will, instead, accept those feelings of loss and pain.

The beautiful child-like innocence and awe we used to have is something he perfectly portrays in his writing and illustrations. Looking forward to getting some more books by this author for my little boy to enjoy when he's a little older.This is a magical, beautifully illustrated tale about reaching for dreams… Adults tend to think of waiting as tedious, but the magic of this book is that it understands waiting as children wait – alert, apprehensive and using their imaginations. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Finally, just when the boy is ready to give up, he learns that sometimes things aren't where, or what, we expect them to be. Lost and Found became Oliver's first book to made into animation by London based Studio AKA, screening on Christmas Eve 2008 on Channel 4 in the UK and on Nickelodeon in the US and Australia.

Althought the story is simple, remember you are reading to a child, my 2 yr old is amazed at how many things have stars in them other than the sky. It has wonderful illustrations and text which both hold the attention of the children and from which they can follow independently after listening to the story.From figurative painting, collage and installation to illustration and award winning picture-books, Oliver Jeffers practice takes many forms. Every night he watched them sailing in the sky outside his bedroom window and dreamed of making friends with them, playing games of hide-and-seek together.

It made me realise that while losing someone is, indeed, horrible but shutting yourself away in a protective shell doesn't help the situation nor is it something that person would ever want.

And I don't think I would have been as lucky as finding someone "small and still curious about the world" like she had.
