Shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2010.
Touching and funny, this is also a visually sophisticated picture book which lightly carries an important message about the use – and misuse - of resources.
CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal SHORTLIST 2010: Judges’ comments
This is a brilliant whole production which makes wonderful use of colour, jacket and endpapers to convey an eco-message with a light touch. There are lots of witty little references and touches of humour to pick up on in this book which definitely rewards repeated re-reading.
also Shortlisted for the Bisto Irish Children's Book Award.
The Great Paper Caper by Oliver Jeffers
All is not well in the forest: branches of the trees keep disappearing and no one knows who has taken them. While searching for the culprit, the forest’s inhabitants turn accusingly on each other. Luckily they all have water-tight alibis so who can be carrying out the thefts? At last, they find the culprit. It is Bear who, in his desperation to win the paper aeroplane competition, gathers as much wood as possible and turns it all into paper….The delight for the readers is that they can follow what Bear is doing long before the truth is out.
'The Incredible Book Eating Boy: Mouth-wateringly irresistible The Guardian Praise for 'Lost and Found': 'An uplifting story...pictures of such spare beauty...suffused with a dreamlike quality.'
'How to Catch a Star': 'The best recent picture book by light years, is stylishly spellbinding.'
'Hail to new talent... If only all picture books could be this good.'
