Illustrator, Oliver Jeffers

A brief visit to my favorite bookstore over the weekend had me browsing the children's section for some "big board" books to read to Addy at bedtime. One of the first book's I picked up was "Lost and Found" by Oliver Jeffers. Not only is Oliver the author, but he also illustrated this beautiful book, about a lost penguin looking for friendship in warmer climates.

Not only does author and illustrate children's books, but he is also a talented painter, and creator of not so normal "objects" as his website suggests. Such a talent, don't you think?

I'm always amazed how something such as buying a book can lead you down the path of the unknown, in this case, a fabulous artist in his own right.
