OLIVER  JEFFERS IN VANCOUVER 1

OLIVER JEFFERS VISITS VANCOUVER 2013

OLIVER JEFFERS VANCOUVER - LOST AND FOUND - THE COOKIE

The incredibly talented, charming, and self-deprecatingly humorous author/artist gave a presentation about what it’s like being Oliver Jeffers before a sold-out audience on Saturday, 23 February 2013 in Vancouver.

I took a stack of my favourite books for Mr. Jeffers to sign (photos, below) but, alas, the capacity crowd meant a limit of 2 autographs per devotee.

Along with the photos of my books, I’m including some video links for those who don’t yet know how amazing Mr. Jeffers is. Watch them and you, too, will become a devotee.

The New York Times Book Review has announced its list of the 10 Best Illustrated Children’s Books of 2011. Artwork from this year’s winners will appear in the special Children’s Book section of the Book Review’s November 13 issue.

The judges this year were Jeanne Lamb, the coordinator of youth collections at The New York Public Library; Lucy Calkins, the Richard Robinson Professor of Children’s Literature at Teachers College of Columbia University; and Sophie Blackall, an author and artist who has illustrated 24 books for children, including one of last year’s Best Illustrated winners, “Big Red Lollipop,” as well as “The Crows of Pearblossom,” “Spinster Goose: Twisted Rhymes for Naughty Children” and “Are You Awake?” — all published this year. They chose from among hundreds of children’s picture books published in 2011.

The Book Review’s 10 Best Illustrated Children’s Books for 2011, in alphabetical order, are:

Along a Long Road,” written and illustrated by Frank Viva (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers)

“A Ball for Daisy,” written and illustrated by Chris Raschka (Schwartz & Wade)

“Brother Sun, Sister Moon: Saint Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of the Creatures,” written by Katherine Paterson, illustrated by Pamela Dalton (Chronicle Books)

Grandpa Green,” written and illustrated by Lane Smith (Roaring Brook Press)

Ice,” written and illustrated by Arthur Geisert (Enchanted Lion Books)

I Want My Hat Back,” written and illustrated by Jon Klassen (Candlewick Press)

Me … Jane,” written and illustrated by Patrick McDonnell (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers)

“Migrant,” written by Maxine Trottier, illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault (Groundwood Books)

A Nation’s Hope: The Story of Boxing Legend Joe Louis,” written by Matt de la Peña, illustrated by Kadir Nelson (Dial)

“A New Year’s Reunion,” written by Yu Li-Qiong, illustrated by Zhu Cheng-Liang (Candlewick Press).

Zhu Cheng Liang was born in Shanghai in 1948. He studied fine arts at Nanjing Art Institute and is currently deputy chief editor at the Jiangsu Fine Arts Publishing House. His achievements include an Honorable Mention by UNESCO’s Noma Concours for his illustrations in Flashing Rabbit-shaped Lamp. Zhu Cheng Liang lives in China.

Next year, The New York Times Best Illustrated awards will celebrate its 60th anniversary.
