About the Author:

Oliver Jeffers graduated from The University of Ulster in 2001 with First Class honours. His outstanding talent has been recognised by several high-profile awards, including the Nestle Children's Book Prize Gold Award. `Lost and Found' animation was broadcast on Channel 4. Oliver lives and works in Brookyln, New York.

From Publishers Weekly:

Jefferss (The Incredible Book-Eating Boy) forest creatures have dots for eyes and sticks for legs; they live in tidy holes in the ground, equipped with home offices and washing machines. Responsible citizens, they notice that trees in their forest are missing big branches, and organize themselves to find the perpetrator—readers know from the outset its the bear, in need of paper for a paper airplane contest. The drama unfolds in neatly paced vignettes and comic book–style panels with the rounded corners of old television sets. Jeffers joins the speech balloons to his characters mouths with ruled pencil lines; his spidery writing is a sweetly incongruous vehicle for fast-moving patter (Ill be the detective and you can be the judge, the beaver tells the deer. Why do I have to be the judge? the deer protests, and waves a hoof toward the pig. Why not him? Im the prosecutor, thats why, says the pig). The conclusion nods toward forgiveness and restorative justice, but its the anti-crime tape that gets the laughs. Jeffers lobs a joke or two over the heads of young listeners, a gesture that will be welcomed by presiding adults. Ages 3–5. (Jan.)
