All the picture books (except the last one – Consider Love) were devoured during a visit to my favourite Mumbai bookstore two weekends ago.  I sat down on the floor of the children’s section, reached into the lowest shelf and picked out all the Oliver Jeffers books I could see, added a couple of Mo Willems books to the pile, then sat on a pouffe, ignored all the confused looks (I did not have a child to read out the picture books to) and laughed along with every single one.
