Overview
This strange fairytale—first painted and then crafted into poetry and music— is an experience to be shared by all who love to be fascinated. It follows the little fat man and his blue hare as they leap from a hundred years frozen in fear in scenes of war and hunting into a reality as bizarre, bewitching and adventurous as the tapestries they escaped from.
Description
This strange fairytale is an experience to be shared by all who love to be fascinated. It follows the little fat man and his blue hare as they leap from a hundred years frozen in fear in scenes of war and hunting into a reality as bizarre, bewitching and adventurous as the tapestries they escape from. Through paintings, poetry and music, the story weaves back and forth from the real world, where Sam Scriber sits writing while his house is burning, to the threatened world ruled by the Birdman, the Lord of Fantasy. Both are rescued in a final scene, a final tapestry created as the little fat man and his hare manage to solve a great riddle and bring all the threads together. This book will be appreciated by all ages, but especially by the parent/grandparent and child who want to explore strange and enchanting worlds together.
