Waterstones Says

The ever-inventive Oliver Jeffers departs from his trademark style to embrace traditional lithography and hand set type in this powerful fable about ownership and humility. Sending its entitled protagonist off on a voyage of both geographical and self-discovery, The Fate of Fausto entertains and enlightens as only Jeffers can.

A stunningly presented modern-day fable from world-renowned talent Oliver Jeffers.

There was once a man who believed he owned everything and set out to survey what was his.

"You are mine," Fausto said to the flower, the sheep and the mountain, and they bowed before him. But they were not enough for Fausto, so he conquered a boat and set out to sea...

Working for the first time in traditional lithography, world-renowned talent, Oliver Jeffers, combines spectacular art with powerful prose, hand set using traditional lead type, to create a poignant modern-day fable to touch the hearts of adults and children alike.

This is incredibly beautiful, and it's the type of picture book that appeals to every age. My daughter was really interested in the story and Fausto (and she was absolutely entranced by the illustrations!) but... More

“A gorgeously illustrated tale that warns against hubris”

I am ashamed to admit that I am a new reader of Oliver Jeffers. He has always intrigued me when I'm tidying the picture book section of my shop but I was yet to pick one up. HarperCollins were kind enough to send... More
