Oliver Jeffers Profile

A Publishers Weekly profile of Oliver Jeffers:

Author-illustrator Oliver Jeffers, a Belfast native who has lived in Brooklyn since 2007, is enjoying his greatest U.S. success to date with Stuck, his eighth and most recent picture book. Released last November, the book sold out its original 20,000-copy print run and to date has 50,000 copies in print. But Jeffers had already made a much bigger name for himself in the U.K., beginning with his 2004 debut, How to Catch a Star. That plucked-from-the-slush-pile submission went on to win a Merit Award at the following year's Bisto Book of the Year Awards in Ireland.   Since then, Jeffers has racked up multiple nominations and honors overseas.
