Moon Man - Tomi Ungerer Book

Ich habe meiner Tochter dieses Buch zur Geburt geschenkt und ihr von Anbeginn daraus vorgelesen, jetzt ist sie fast 2 Jahre und kann schon einiges miterzählen. Ich finde die Geschicht und Zeichnungen wunderbar.

His books might address children, yet Tomi Ungerer draws inspiration from his remarkable adult life. Growing up in Nazi-occupied France, Ungerer served in the French army during the 1950s, travelled extensively throughout Europe, before ending up in New York, where his work both as a children's author and commercial illustrator won him plaudits in both fields. Now, to mark the DVD release of the recent film adaptation of his children’s classic, Moon Man, the 82-year-old author tells Phaidon.com how his wild life fed into his stories, and why he insists on treating children as equals.
