What We'll Build: Plans For Our Future Together

You know you’re in safe hands when Oliver Jeffers tells a story. It’s not just because he’s an international award winner. It’s because Jeffers only tells a story if he has something important to say. And most often, just one point to make. Clearly. Simply. With very spare prose, delivered in his delightful trademark handwriting. And with deceptively uncomplicated images. But in What We’ll Build, the message runs deep.

The Fate of Fausto

Yet another stunning picturebook from award-winning artist Oliver Jeffers, The Fate of Fausto is a beautiful work. A modern cautionary tale, it tells the simple but compelling story of Fausto who set out to rule the Earth and own all that he could survey from the mountains to the seas. But nature, as we know, bends to no man, and some things in life can neither be bought nor sold.
