Discover Children’s Story Centre in east London is launched an exciting new interactive exhibition, Once there was…The Wonderful World of Oliver Jeffers.
Working with the fantastic team at Discover, Jeffers & Sons helped bring to life an exhibition that explores the beautiful and best-loved work of Oliver Jeffers. Children and families are able to walk into immersive environments inspired by How to Catch a Star, Up and Down, Lost and Found and The Way Back Home.
The exhibition coincides with the 10th anniversary of the publication of How to Catch a Star, and will feature live storytelling of the ‘boy’ books and an opportunity to explore a series of spaces that will set children’s imaginations on fire including ‘the boy’s’ bedroom complete with penguins, aliens, a Lost and Found office, a full-sized rowing boat, a beach, a pier, a garden and a rocket.
‘This is a unique representation of Oliver’s work where children will be able to physically explore some of their favourite scenes of the superb ‘boy’ books. Oliver’s books are inspiring, moving and heartening and brilliantly capture the themes of loneliness and friendship in their pages. Discover has recreated his wide open landscapes and made the themes leap from the page.’ Sarah Dance, Discover’s Chief Executive.
