A Piece of Passion from David Bennett, Publisher, Boxer Books
When I read the first story in a French edition of the original Dutch volumes of these tales written by Toon Tellegen, I hunted down the English rights and bagged them. When it comes to Toon's writing, it is not an overstatement to say unique, extraordinary, singular, touching, remarkable, exceptional, unforgettable...(one could go on) Combined with Jessica Ahlbergs stunning miniature watercolours - magnificent! What a claim! And so true.
Far Away Across the Sea by Toon Tellegen
The squirrel, the ant, the elephant and friends return in a new collection of short stories from Toon Tellegen. These delightful tales conjure up a magical world where anything can happen: a snail can fly, the sky can turn green and a tree can get up and walk away.
“Toon’s stories are beautifully told, quirky and delightful, with the warmth of the wonderful Pooh stories. Jessica Ahlberg’s illustrations perfectly complement the mood of the writing, they’re a joy!” – Wendy Cooling, MBE, Founder of Bookstart
