Synopsis

The Extraordinary Mr. Qwerty by Karla Strambini

Norman Qwerty is a man of many ideas, and none of them is the least bit ordinary. He's quite certain that no one else thinks the way he does, and so he keeps his ideas to himself. But when his ideas get simply too big to hold in, Norman builds the most extraordinary thing! Soon, the beloved Mr Qwerty is never alone (unless he wants to be!), and the world will never be the same.

Reviews

By combining minimal text with highly detailed scenes, Strambini is able to add depth and sophistication to a seemingly simple message. -- Inis * Inis *
