About this title

Synopsis:

"Mine's big, yours green as leaves in spring. I can pull mine on a string . . ." So begins this charming story of two friends who embark on a flight of fancy, as they compare and contrast their imaginary friends in a classic children's game. The book's imagistic text invokes all sorts of exciting creatures and situations, from the mysterious being that eats chestnuts to the one that "lurks in nooks and crannies" to the "poor lonesome soul" who has vanished. With striking illustrations and a compulsively readable rhyming text, this surreal picture book is both a delightful read in itself and a perfect starting point for all sorts of discussions.

About the Author:

Peter Geissler, born 1962, studied philosophy in Munich where he lives with his wife and son. He writes poetry for grown-ups and works as a journalist and editor. Meins und Deins was his first book for children. He has since published Ich kenn mich schon gut aus also with Almud Kunert. Almud Kunert was born in Bayreuth in Germany. She studied painting and graphic design in Munich where she now lives, working as a free-lance illustrator. Anthea Bell was born in Suffolk, was educated at Somerville College, Oxford, and has worked as a translator for a number of years, primarily from German and French. Her translations include works of non-fiction, literary and popular fiction, and books for young people. She has been the recipient of a number of translation prizes and awards, among them the 1987 Schlegel-Tieck Award for Hans Berman's The Stone and the Flute (Viking) and the first Marsh Award for Children's Literature in Translation for Christine Nostlinger's A Dog's Life (Andersen Press). She lives in Cambridge.
