This is an absurdist picture book about right and wrong by Atak, one of Germany’s top illustrators. Atak, AKA Hans-Georg Barber, is a Professor of Illustration in Halle, Germany and co-founded the avant garde comics magazine Renate.

Be prepared for a world where mice chase cats, penguins live in the jungle, cars fly and aeroplanes float. It’s a time-honoured children’s game; catching out the grown-ups when they’re telling lies. Atak’s twist tells tall tales – classic and invented – in hilarious scenes.

By seeing what’s obviously wrong, kids will learn what’s really right.
