An inspirational story from internationally bestselling, multi-prize-winning picture book creator Oliver Jeffers.

Review:

“...the best recent picture book by light years, is stylishly spellbinding” Telegraph

“A story about possibilities and disappointments with a triumphant ending, all of which Jeffers captures through the beautifully expressive changing moods of his little boy.” Guardian

“This is a magical, beautifully illustrated tale about reaching for dreams... Adults tend to think of waiting as tedious, but the magic of this book is that it understands waiting as children wait – alert, apprehensive and using their imaginations.” Mail on Sunday

“Hail to new talent... If only all picture books could be this good" The Bookseller

From the Back Cover:

Oliver Jeffers studied visual Communication at the University of Ulster. Since graduating he has exhibited paintings in Belfast, New York and Sydney.
He started creating children's books when people wouldn't believe what happened to him unless he pretended he was telling 'stories'. At an early age, Oliver developed an appreciation of five-letter words and his loves include plastic food, wheels, suitcase handles, Elvis and, despite not having met one yet, polar bears.
