Moments of human intimacy jostle with scenes that inspire cosmic awe, and the broad diversity of Jefferss candy-colored humans...underscores the twin messages that Youre never alone on Earth and that were all in this together.--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A true work of art.--BuzzFeed

Oliver Jeffers, arguably the most influential creator of picture books today, offers a rare personal look inside his own hopes and wishes for his child--and in doing so gifts children and parents everywhere with a gently sweet and humorous missive about our world and those who call it home.

Insightfully sweet, with a gentle humor and poignancy, here is Oliver Jeffers users guide to life on Earth. He created it specially for his son, yet with a universality that embraces all children and their parents. Be it a complex view of our planets terrain (bumpy, sharp, wet), a deep look at our place in space (its big), or a guide to all of humanity (dont be fooled, we are all people), Olivers signature wit and humor combine with a value system of kindness and tolerance to create a must-have book for parents.
