About this item

Oliver Jeffers, arguably the most influential creator of picture books today, offers a rare personal look inside his own hopes and wishes for his child--and in doing so gifts children and parents everywhere with a gently sweet and humorous missive about our world and those who call it home.

Insightfully sweet, with a gentle humor and poignancy, here is Oliver Jeffers' user's guide to life on Earth. He created it specially for his son, yet with a universality that embraces all children and their parents. Be it a complex view of our planet's terrain (bumpy, sharp, wet) , a deep look at our place in space (it's big) , or a guide to all of humanity (don't be fooled, we are all people) , Oliver's signature wit and humor combine with a value system of kindness and tolerance to create a must-have book for parents.
