Inspired by the birth of his son, Oliver Jeffers was moved to create this picture book, subtitled ‘Notes for Living on Planet Earth’. In this guide for those new to life on Earth, words and pictures combine to describe the world and its wonders and how human beings interact with it and each other. He concludes that there is much for us still to do and understand and emphasises the importance of respect for others and, most of all, kindness.
