Very tasty and chewy words, with a side dish of beautiful illustrations and a dessert full of cuteness and ice cream!
If you haven’t eaten this book yet, then you need to Get Into Reading this weekend. Oliver Jeffers’ The Incredible Book Eating Boy is a timeless classic that I’d highly recommend for book eaters of all ages. (I also hear they are making a TV show of it soon called “The Great Irish Book Off”!)
Come join us in every Eason store in Ireland at 11am on Saturday, September 29th, as we read The Incredible Book Eating Boy to children, adults and big kids!
And don’t forget: Oliver will be hosting a drawalong evening with Children’s Laureate Niamh Sharkey at 6pm tonight in Eason O’Connell St!
Following on from the success of last year’s ‘Illustration Celebration’ events, we are delighted to announce the picture book master, Oliver Jeffers, and Laureate na nOg, Niamh Sharkey, will be visiting us again at Eason O’Connell St this month.
So whether you’re a budding illustrator, a picture book connoisseur or just a fan of Oliver Jeffers’ hat, join us on Thursday 27th September at 6pm for an evening of draw-along fun!
Tickets are free and are available from the Eason O’Connell St. information desk or by calling (01) 858 3800.
See you there!
The opening line of Lost and Found by Belfast-born illustrator Oliver Jeffers perfectly conveys the simplicity and quirkiness of the story that follows, involving a boy, a sad penguin, a trip to the South Pole and an unexpected friendship. So heartwarming it could melt a glacier!
And, of course, Oliver’s award-winning illustrations are the star of the show – cute, childish and full of expression.
Join us in every Eason store in Ireland at 11am on Saturday, August 18th, as we read Lost and Found to children, adults and big kids!
