Tomi Ungerer: A Treasury of 8 Books / ISBN 9781838663698 / 320-page hardcover from Phaidon
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.
Tomi Ungerer is a winner of the Hans Christian Andersen Award, and has a museum entirely dedicated to his work in Strasbourg. His bestselling book, The Three Robbers, has sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide.
