Incredible Book Eating Boy
Written & Illustrated by Oliver Jeffers

This tactile story is my new favourite…everything from the little guy’s expressions to the illustrations actually being done on recycled BOOKS! If you look carefully at the illustrations you’ll notice there are book spines & pages being painted across… it’s a deliciously edible story, encouraging children to read books to learn cool things…not eat them!

“Oliver Jeffers was born in Port Hedland, Western Australia in 1977 and bred in Belfast, Northern Ireland….Oliver began writing and illustrating children’s stories when he realised that people didn’t believe what he did with his time…In 2005, ‘How to Catch a Star’ won a Merit Award at the CBI/Bisto Book of Year Awards…Oliver loves plastic food, suitcase handles and Elvis, and has developed a bizarre habit of endlessly writing lists he never reads. He remains hell bent on travelling all over the world.” – Bio
