The Emperor of Absurdia

Chris Riddell

About the book

Welcome to Absurdia: a strange and wonderful land where nothing is quite what it seems. Trees are birds, umbrellas are trees, and the sky is thick with snoring fish. Join one small boy as he tumbles out of bed into a crazy dreamland of wardrobe monsters, dragons - and amazing adventure.

This gloriously rich and beautiful picture book comes from Chris Riddell, a uniquely talented artist at the height of his powers. With a story to enchant the youngest reader, and pictures to gasp and pore over whatever your age, The Emperor of Absurdia is an extraordinary achievement and one to savour.
