Two Nominations For Oliver Jeffers On CBI 2016 Book Of The Year Shortlist!

We’re so excited to announce that Oliver Jeffers has received two nominations on this year’s CBI Book of the Year shortlist!  The CBI Book of the Year Awards are the leading annual children’s book awards in Ireland. Now in their 25th year, the awards  are made annually by Children’s Books Ireland. The CBI Book of the Year Awards identify, honour and promote excellence in books for young people by Irish authors and illustrators.

Imaginary Fred is an extraordinary collaboration between Irish Children’s Laureate, Eoin Colfer, and picture book superstar, Oliver Jeffers!

Sometimes, with a little electricity, or luck, or even magic, an imaginary friend might appear when you need one. An imaginary friend like Fred…  Fred floated like a feather in the wind until a lonely little boy wished for him and found a friendship like no other.

The perfect chemistry between Eoin Colfer’s text and Oliver Jeffer’s artwork make for a dazzlingly original colour gift book.

The Day The Crayons Came Home is the hilarious sequel to the prize-winning, international bestseller The Day the Crayons Quit!

Watch out – the crayons are back and they’re crosser than ever! One day Duncan receives a set of postcards from his crayons who been lost, forgotten, broken – even melted in a clothes dryer and stuck to a sock!

A hilarious text and joyful illustrations combine to show that crayons have feelings too in this laugh-out-loud sequel to bestselling picture book The Day the Crayons Quit.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held on 23rd May at Dublin’s Smock Alley Theatre, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed!
