Об этой электронной книге

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 the award winning Chris Riddell, a uniquely talented author/illustrator at the height of his powers. With a story to enchant the youngest readers, and pictures to gasp and pore over whatever your age, The Emperor of Absurdia is an extraordinary example of wonderful storytelling.

Also available: Wendel and the Robots.

    Bizarre story that stretches the imagination, with fun, colorful illustrations.

    When the boy-emperor of Absurdia awakens to the sounds of sky fish nibbling on umbrella trees, he falls out of bed, and into the arms of his Wardrobe Monster. Unfortunately, although his woolly hat, crumply coat, and jingle-jangle socks are soon located, the emperor's snuggly scarf is nowhere to be found! So begins this delightfully bizarre adventure, in which the young emperor ranges over the aptly named land of Absurdia, questing after his scarf, and barely escaping from the clutches of a mother dragon. Exhausted after a busy day, the emperor goes to sleep, awakening... but that's another story!A delightfully imaginative romp through a dreamlike landscape, The Emperor of Absurdia is the kind of surreal adventure that will appeal to young Seuss lovers. Chris Riddell - who contributed his fabulous illustrations to Paul Stewart's fantasy series, The Edge Chronicles - is at his creepy best here. Expressive, bizarre, and somehow just right, his artwork manages to be simultaneously endearing and disturbing. This is one picture-book that young fans of the bizarre - or of Riddell - will not want to miss!
