Oskar, a charming raven, loves trees, red cherries, and the smell of spring. He also loves rain, snow, clouds, books, and the moon. With this book’s simple, boldly colored, and beautiful illustrations, children are invited into Oskar’s world and in turn to explore the wonders of the world around them. As she has done in her previous books, such as Grumpy Cat and Before I Wake Up…, Britta Teckentrup combines evocative art with a storyline that will appeal to children and those who read to them. Asking, “What do you love?” Oskar Loves… invites all of us to take a moment to appreciate the world we inhabit.
Born in Hamburg, Teckentrup studied art and illustration at the Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art in London. She is author and illustrator of numerous books and has received many awards. She lives with her Scottish husband and her son Vincent in Berlin.
Britta Teckentrup books published by Prestel: "Oskar loves ...", "Oskar and Mo", "Oscar can...", "Before I wake up", "The Egg" and "Birds and Their Feathers".
