Just announced! Oliver Jeffers, arguably the most influential creator of picture books today, is coming to our Tempe store with HERE WE ARE, a rare personal look inside his own hopes and wishes for his child.
ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
