Books on Film: Oliver Jeffers on The Late Late Show
This is my solemn vow:
If a maker of children’s books appears on television, I’ll be there.
So when I spotted this Oliver Jeffers post on Instagram . . .
. . . I got on the case of tracking down that video. I traveled all the way to Ireland¹ to get it. It’s great. And here it is:
This is not just a run of the mill late night TV chit-chat – no! Jeffers talks to Ryan Tubridy about grown-ups who love picture books, a failed colorblindness test, and the convergence of art and math. Jeffers also comes armed with a black marker and tells the story from his book The Incredible Book Eating Boy live, illustrations and all.
¹By Ireland, I mean a website from Ireland.
