There’s Something About Oliver Jeffers

I’m not quite sure what it is….
For some reason he keeps hitting my windshield1.

If you can figure out his jeni se qua please @Preneur on Twitter .

“The Pictures Define The Words And The Words Define The Pictures”

“What Happens If Someone Eats Books And Gets Smart?”

“Possibly A Writers Jacket”

Oh yeah, the rotten sod also just had his very first iPad App The Heart &The Bottle achieve ‘App of the Week’ on the Apple iTunes store.

P.S. Do you think his mustache is real ?


Do you know what I think it is? He’s entertaining. He hides some very good lessons in the honey pot called entertainment (see: “decide who your book is for” + “each book starts with a pencil” + “write about things that interest you”+ “I do believe eating books is a metaphor for consuming books”)… and he clearly ships.


  1. This is where I first stumbled upon Olver – Great though provoking blog post in it’s own right: http://katiechatfield.wordpress.com/2010/03/10/is-it-the-right-chart/
