Love of Reading Gallery – Oliver Jeffers

Tuesday, August 5, 2008.

Love of Reading Gallery - Oliver JeffersWhen we put out the call for illustrations that promote a love of reading, we didn’t expect to receive 51 submissions in about a month.

As part of the second anniversary celebrations of the Just One More Book!! children’s book podcast, we’re conducting short interviews with each illustrator that contributed to our Love of Reading Gallery. These interviews will be published three times each week as extra shows in our interview feed.

Author, illustrator and artist Oliver Jeffers makes an encore appearance on this edition of Just One More Book!! This time Oliver talks about his Love of Reading Gallery submission titled The Incredible Book Reading Joy.

Be sure to enjoy all of the amazing artwork in our Love of Reading Gallery.

Interview with Oliver Jeffers

Monday, February 11, 2008.

Photo of Oliver Jeffers by Christopher HeaneyAs an artist, he says that his work in children’s picture books is only a small part of what he does; however, because the books are for children, people may view his work as being of less value. His fine art is powerful and children’s books engaging and, at age 30, a sign of even greater things to come.

On this edition of Just One More Book!!, Mark speaks with author, illustrator and artist, Oliver Jeffers about storytelling through illustration and words, connecting logic and emotion, and inspiring conversation through creative works.

Oliver Jeffers’ book, The Incredible Book Eating Boy is a Finalist in the Fiction Picture Book category of the 2007 Cybils awards.
