Next Please by Ernst Jandl, Norman Junge


Next Please by Ernst Jandl, Norman Junge

Five clapped-out toys sit in a gloomy room awaiting the ominous call, 'Next Please'. As each toy emerges bouncing with renewed energy and exuberance, the murky atmosphere disperses to reveal a jolly, beaming doctor.


Short on words but big on suspense and atmosphere, this will keep children hooked. -- Independent
