Big Red Barn
AuthorMargaret Wise Brown
Another book has migrated downstairs for my review. Before I wrote this review, I had to do a little research on the author. I vaguely remembered that she had no children and died young -- I was right: she never married, had no children and died of a post-surgery blood clot in 1952 at the age of 42. Yet her work...
Little Fur Family
AuthorMargaret Wise Brown
There was a little fur family
warm as toast
smaller than most
in little fur coats
and they lived in a warm wooden tree.

The Little Fur Family tells the story of a little fur child's day in the woods. The day ends when his big fur parents tuck him in bed "all soft and warm," and sing...

Black Country Stories
AuthorMartin Parr

Parr studied photography at Manchester Polytechnic, from 1970-1973. Since that time,...
Codex Seraphinianus. Ein Orbis Pictus des Universums der Phantasie.
AuthorLuigi Serafini
Questo codice miniato fantastico e misterioso, "l'enciclopedia di un visionario" (nella definizione di Italo Calvino), continua da anni ad affascinarci per la sua capacità di rivelazione, che si cela dietro l'enigma di una grafia chiarissima eppure sfuggente. Una nuova edizione, arricchita...
