The Great Paper Caper

The Great Paper CaperMr. Oliver Jeffers, the handsome man himself, told me last spring that his new book would be released in October.  So, being on the alert, I sent him an e-mail last week asking (ever so politely) when, oh WHEN, can I buy his new book??!!  He replied immediately and told me it’s available NOW!  Whoo hoo!

So… I went directly to Amazon (UK) and ordered a few copies (I always keep his books around for birthday presents, etc.).  I was stupid though, because I didn’t pay for overnight delivery, so the next day I was feeling impatient. So I walked to the bookstore and bought the last copy off the shelf. At last — it was in my hands!

And the verdict??  It’s great. Clever as always, with charming and colorful illustrations. We’ve read it over and over again and I’m still finding little things on each page that make me laugh.  I’m in love (…with the book, of course… :))!!


P.S.  Sadly for the Americans, it’s not available in the states until March!

Thanks for reminding me of this author, I have yet to purchase any of his books and I’ve been meaning to! So, until March, it will have to be “how to catch a star”
