Oliver Jeffers From his much-loved debut, How to Catch a Star he has gone on to create a collection of award-winning and bestselling picture books, which have been translated all over the globe, including the #1 New York Times bestseller and TIME Best Book of the Year Here We Are, as well as the companion What We’ll Build. He is also the illustrator of the smash hits The Day the Crayons Quit and The Day the Crayons Came Home, both written by Drew Daywalt.

Oliver is from Belfast, Northern Ireland, and now he, his wife and young children split their time between Belfast and Brooklyn, NY.


"Jeffers masterfully captures the universe’s vastness while playfully humanizing space...The artwork puts readers in the driver’s seat. A first purchase for all collections." School Library Journal, starred review

"The writing breaks down big concepts into relatively simple parts, while Jeffers’ imaginative artwork invites viewers to come along for the ride." Booklist
