More stories; more letters; more birthdays: Toon Tellegen and Jessica Ahlberg have again created a unique collection of animal tales that will enchant children…and adults, too.
Tellegen's delightful short narratives conjure up a magical world where anything can happen: trees can talk and walk, a sand fly can lift an elephant, and a squirrel wakes to find that the sky is green. Ahlberg's delicate illustrations perfectly complement the beautiful and evocative writing.
Author and poet Toon Tellegen is one of the Netherlands' most celebrated writers. His animal stories have been translated into 19 languages and are cherished by children and parents the world over. He lives in Amsterdam.
Jessica Ahlberg, daughter of the acclaimed author-illustrator team Janet and Allen Ahlberg, studied at Winchester School of Art and has illustrated several books for children. She lives in Brighton, England.
