  • 不可思議的做書男孩──繪本作家奧利佛.傑法


    來自英國北愛爾蘭的奧利佛.傑法一直是位揉合諸多矛盾對立特質的藝術家。他的網站首頁是他穿著短褲與工作圍裙背對鏡頭、面對一幅浪濤洶湧的畫作,專心工作的相片,他穿著短袖,手臂上露出刺青,據說刺青的圖案是對偶定理的等式。他的臉書上記載的去年9大亮點,除了發表的雕塑作品、童書作品與持續進 more
  • 【主題繪本控】賴嘉綾:每個故事都是真的!探訪繪本作家Oliver Jeffers工作室


    書之子 因為《書之子》,我訪問了原始構想者山姆.溫斯頓之後,一直掛在心上的是有幾個問題一定要請教繪者奧利佛.傑法。譬如小女孩為什麼是藍色的?為什麼她漸漸從部分藍色變成全部藍色?這種問題,如果以文字書面去詢問,往往斷章取義,就算列出幾個問題透過電郵詢問,也像是問電腦而不是問本人 more


Perfect for gift-giving, here isTHE alphabet book to top all others, an over-sized work of brilliance from the illustrator of the #1 New York Times bestselling The Day the Crayons Quit!

If words make up the stories and letters make up the words, then stories are made up of letters. In this menagerie we have stories made of words, made FOR all the letters.

The most inventive and irresistible book of the year spans a mere 26 letters (don’t they all!) and 112 pages. From an Astronaut who’s afraid of heights, to a Bridge that ends up burned between friends, to a Cup stuck in a cupboard and longing for freedom, Once Upon an Alphabet is a creative tour de force from A through Z. Slyly funny in a way kids can’t resist, and gorgeously illustrated in a way readers of all ages will pour over, this series of interconnected stories and characters explores the alphabet in a way that will forever raise the bar.

In Once Upon an Alphabet, #1 New York Times bestseller Oliver Jeffers has created a stunning collection of words and artwork that is a story book, alphabet book, and gorgeously designed art book all in one.

A New York Times Bestseller!

* "The silly, spare, slightly surreal text occasionally rhymes and endlessly surprises. An utterly delightful alphabet book."-Kirkus Review, starred review

* "With wry humor, equally droll ink illustrations, and a solid dose of alliteration, Jeffers creates delightful mini-narratives for each letter of the alphabet."-Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "An altogether stimulating, surprising, and satisfying reading experience."-School Library Journal, starred review

* "Whimsical, funny, occasionally tragic, and highly entertaining, this collection of (sometimes) interlocking tales is brilliantly inventive."-Horn Book, starred review

"Jeffers knows how to catch the attention of his young audience while challenging their imagination, intellect and vocabulary. This whimsical exploration of letters and language begs to be read over and over again."-BookPage

"Handsome, humorous and clad in bright tomato-red, [this] is the sort of book you may want to rush into the arms of imaginative, good-natured children between 4 and 10 years old. [T]his is no traditional abecedarian exercise.The stories are wonderfully varied, sometimes philosophical and often end surprisingly; the drawings are just as quirky and unpredictable."-The Wall Street Journal

"[W]itty from A to Z . . . no one would blame you for having a copy even if there are no kids in the house. Think of it as Edward Gorey for the preschool set -- and their hip parents."-The Washington Post
