The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is an absolutely delightful book that is sure to capture the imagination of toddlers. Jeffers’ illustrations are an absolute delight and together with the text tell an extraordinary and original story about friendship and home.
The Way Back Home was shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Award 2009..This is what the judges said:
'Jeffers somehow manages to convey a whole host of emotions and moods with his stick figures. His style is so clever with its surreal and amusing details, and there is some great variation in the spreads both in terms of illustration and colour. Lovely metallic endpapers too!'
The Way Back Home by Oliver Jeffers
Zoom into space on an exciting adventure in this toddler-friendly board book from the award-winning, bestselling creator of How to Catch a Star and Lost and Found. One day a boy finds an aeroplane in his cupboard. Up, up and away he flies, past clouds and stars until suddenly, phut, phut phut, the plane runs out of petrol and the boy crash lands on the moon. Just as he is beginning to get cold and lonely, a Martian appears from the darkness - could this be the start of an unlikely friendship? And will the boy ever manage to get home again?
