Reviews

An ingenious moral tale * Glasgow Herald * This classic story, first published in 1930, immediately seduces the reader with its hilarious world existing just under the surface of our own... Full of good jokes - mainly at the expense of the Fattypuffs - and good drawings by Fritz Wegner * Guardian * One of our favourite books as children -- Kevin Crossley-Holland * Daily Mail * Wegner's drawings of the lands of the Thinifer and Fattypuff people are heartwarming, imaginative and kind, but, more importantly, they are very funny -- Rob Ryan * The Times *

About the Author

Andre Maurois

Maurois was born at Elbeuf as the son of a textile manufacturer. His family had fled Alsace after the Franco-Prussian War (1870) and took refuge in Normandy, where they owned a woolen mill at Elbeuf. Maurois was a brilliant student. He studied at the lycée of Elbeuf and Rouen, received barchelor's degree in letters and science and continued for a degree in philosophy at the University of Caen. From the age of eighteen to twenty-six he worked at his father's factory. When the World War I broke out, Maurois was first attached as an interpreter, then as a liaison officer to the British Army.

As a novelist Maurois made his debut with The Silence of Colonel Bramble (1918), which was based on his experiences in the war.

In 2007, Jane was granted the Eleanor Farjeon Award for distinguished service to the world of British children's books.
