The Way from Halifax to Toronto



Oliver Jeffers will be in Toronto, reading and signing copies of his latest book, The Way Back Home at Mabel's Fables (662 Mount Pleasant Road) at 2pm. So if you're in Toronto head on down there. And while you're there ask him how he liked Halifax and why he didn't stop by Montreal.

I'll make my ignorance public here. As I'm not much into picture books, I know very little about Oliver Jeffers. (Good looking man, but what else?) I'll meet him next month, so what do I need to know?

You can check out his blog (www.oliverjeffers.com) for starters. I think he's interesting because he's a good candidate for making kids books cool - he's a picture book writer/illustrator but also an artist who does lots of other interesting stuff.
I'll post more about his books as soon as I can find a minute - had done up a review just before I lost my hard drive and am now frantically trying to play catch-up around here.
Are you doing an interview?

Well, have just met him... Sigh...

I'll have something about him tomorrow, or the day after. Must now read my way through all the lovely books.
