The Emperor of Absurdia by Chris Riddell
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Skyfish nibble umbrella trees, pointy birds steal scarves to line their pointy nests, and dinner is served before lunch. It's an absurd world, yet it all makes perfect sense as conceived by the unique imagination of Chris Riddell. Young children will be enchanted by this entertaining story of dragon hunts and hairy wardrobe monsters, and absorbed by the extraordinarily rich and detailed illustrations.
