French/Australian Pierre-Jacques Ober comes from a 30-year international career as an independent producer and director in film and television.
Pierre-Jacques and Jules Ober have turned their creative energy to books, using a unique method of story-telling that uses photographs of figurines in miniature sets to create ‘paper movies’.
Their first book, The Good Son, has been hailed as ‘having the power of a timeless fable’ by The New York Times and has won prestigious prizes and awards in the US and France. In Australia it has been shortlisted for the CBCA Picture Book of the Year and is the winner of the NSW Premier’s Young People’s History Prize.
Jacqueline – a soldier’s daughter is their second children’s book.
