The only English-language anthology of Tomi Ungerer's picture books available, this bestselling treasury brings eight iconic picture books by the legendary author together in one lavish volume This glorious collection brings together eight much-loved Ungerer tales, from his best-known classics (The Three Robbers, Moon Man, Otto) and acclaimed recent work Fog Island, to lost gems Zeralda's Ogre, Flix, The Hat and Emile. The only English-language anthology of Ungerer's picture books available, its content celebrates the creative genius of an icon widely acknowledged as one of the most influential children's author/illustrators ever in the realms of children's literature and illustration - acclaimed, award-winning, and influential to the work of Maurice Sendak, Eric Carle and Shel Silverstein. Special features include a personal letter from the author, quotes and anecdotes about each story, and materials from the 'making of' for some his most celebrated works - storyboards, sketches, and images that inspired him. Ideal for Ungerer's adult fan base as well as his youngest readers, this is a lasting tribute to a master of his craft. Ages 5-8

Recensioner i media

As featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Times, Metropolitan (Eurostar) Magazine, The New York Times Book Review, AIGA Eye on Design blog, The Children's Book Review, The Daily Beast, Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast and as seen on KidLit TV 'Repeated visits will be in order....a lavish collection .....both thoughtful and playful.' - Wall Street Journal 'Tomi Ungerer, the contemporary and friend of Maurice Sendak and Shel Silverstein, is a gentle genius and this collection of eight of the French writer and illustrator's stories, plus a biography at the back, is a beautiful collection fit to take on through a life... There is not a dud in the pack - read them all... The wonderful Moon Man imagines with eerie perfection what happens when the main the Moon comes down to Earth. Otto, the autobiography of a bear, is exquisitely told... The more simplistic but no less wonderful Fog Island teaches us to question myths and confirms suspicions that children are often braver than adults. Flix, about a pair of cats who give birth to a dog, is emotional and pertinent. Each party finds equilibrium despite their difference in this non-cloying parabale. It's the right kind of story to discover this week. Ungerer's careful words and masterly illustrations are unmatched. I hope this stunning collection makes him even better known here.' - The Times, Saturday Review 'This beautifully formatted collection of eight of Tomi Ungerer's picture books presented in a slipcase is indeed a treasure.' - Carolyn Angus, Literacy Daily 'Ungerer has always worked to campaign against war and injustice, and his fantastical books deal with such themes, often in topsy-turvy ways... This is a beautifully produced volume, with illustrations throughout, witty and lively, as if Ungerer's characters might at any moment walk of the page... Ungerer's books are characterized by a deep sense of tolerance, with a keen naughtiness that undercuts any potential po-facedness... The question of whether we can know good without knowing evil is always prevalent: and this is a delightful place for a child to discover shich things in a way that is both wise and humane.' - Philip Womack, TLS (Times Literary Supplement) 'After it arrived in my mailbox, I may have walked around my living room hugging the book I'm featuring in today's post. I did. I hugged it hard. But it's that good... All of the stories in this tall collection... Are gloriously reproduced here. But there's more that makes this a must-have for Ungerer fans: an introductory note from Ungerer himself, as well as a "Behind the Scenes" section that closes the book, in which Phaidon's Maya Gartner (Tomi's editor) chats with him about each of these books... This is a beautifully designed book (the endpapers even feature sketches) that meets the needs of both die-hard Ungerer fans, as well as those who are coming to his work for the first time... There's no one quite like Ungerer, is there?' - Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast 'Magnificient... Show[s] the wide range of his work... Four of the books are not currently available as separate volumes which contributes to its irresistibility, as the do the interviews with Tomi Ungerer' - CLPE.org.uk (Center for Literacy in Primary Education) '[Ungerer's] books promote tolerance and diversity, if in a deliciously subversive way... Of course, children don't need to know any of [Ungerer's background] to enjoy these beautiful books but such personal insights make the collection even more collectable.' - West Weekend (The West Australian) '[A] momentous compilation.' - DesignBoom.Com 'This gloriously hefty tome is a complete and utter treasure-y!... Not only does this compendium feature Ungerer's greatest works within one beautifully produced book, but it also features additional anecdotes and exclusive never-before-seen content from unpublished works. There's also an exclusive interview with the man himself and a personal letter from Tomi, mak
