About the Author:

Eugène Ionesco was a French-Romanian playwright and dramatist and one of the foremost playwrights of the Theater of the Absurd. Etienne Delessert is an illustrator whose work has appeared in more than 80 books and publications such as the Atlantic Monthly, Le Monde, and the New York Times. He has been awarded the Premio Grafico at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, gold and silver medals by the American Society of Illustrators, and the Hamilton King Award.  He lives in Lakeville, Connecticut.

Review:

"Must so many children’s books draw so relentlessly on a kind of coy childlike innocence that is an insult to any self-respecting age group? This reviewer will take Ionesco any time."  New York Times

"Screamingly funny and brilliantly illustrated. Story Number 1 may confuse some grownups, but it will exhilarate the children."  Elle magazine, French edition

"Imaginative . . . unusual . . . delicious. A marvellous book published with elegance."  New Statesman

"Fantastic pictures compliment Ionesco’s strange, yet child-appealing text. Recommended."  Liverpool Post

"An international book sensation!"  Rheinische Post

"This is not only a beautiful book, it also a contemporary one. Our gratitude goes to its publisher."  Hessischer Rundfunk

"A wonderful mixture of quiet realism and mad absurdity. True dimension . . . intoxicating!"  Dagbladet Information
