The books of Oliver Jeffers remain our favourites. The image of a bald child reaching for a star can aid both optimism and strength in a child going through chemotherapy. Oliver's books therefore inspired our charity name and incredibly Oliver offered to design us a bespoke logo. We are truly grateful to Oliver for his donation and heartily recommend that you treat your children to a selection of his wonderful books.
