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.
