9780061449291: The Emperor of Absurdia

Welcome to Absurdia: a strange and wonderful land where nothing is quite what it seems. Trees are birds, umbrellas are trees, and the sky is thick with snoring fish. Join one small boy as he tumbles out of bed into a crazy dreamland of wardrobe monsters, dragons -- and amazing adventure. This gloriously rich and beautiful picture book comes from a uniquely talented artist at the height of his powers. With a story to enchant the youngest reader, and pictures to gasp and pore over whatever your age, it is an extraordinary achievement and one to savour.

Product Description:

What kind of world is it where children are in charge and fishes swim the skies?

Where dinner comes before lunch, but then lunch hatches and runs off to fetch its—uh-oh—big, bad mama?

But that's nothing compared to what the Emperor discovers when he wakes up the next morning!

From a two-time winner of the most prestigious picture-book award in Britain comes an adventure in which the extraordinary is ordinary and nothing is ever quite what it seems.
