About the Author

Wolf Erlbruch is a celebrated and inimitable German author and illustrator. He has received many awards, including the 2006 Hans Christian Andersen Medal for Illustration and the 2017 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award.

Reviews

"Erlbruch's text, in Chidgey's translation, offers plenty to talk about, with touches of gentle humor as well as some briskly summarized views of the afterlife. His illustrations likewise repay careful attention despite their apparent simplicity. Created primarily in subdued shades, they appear to incorporate drawing, painting, etching and collage, and they deftly convey both action and personality with a few lines. Adults looking for a unique, thoughtful perspective on a serious subject should definitely consider this--but be sure to preview it before sharing." --Kirkus Reviews

"Erlbruch does not offer readers explanation or comfort; instead, he uses his considerable artistic power to probe death's mystery." --Publishers Weekly

"The surrealistic yet modest synthesis of collage and drawings is true to the simple elegance and poignancy of the text." --School Library Journal
