About the Author

Tomi Ungerer is one of the world's most famous and best-loved children's authors. An illustrator, writer, designer, toy-collector and archivist of human absurdity, his work spans storybooks, poster designs, political campaigns and film. He is a recipient of the Hans Christian Andersen prize for illustration, and the Musee Tomi Ungerer, devoted exclusively to his work, opened in Strasbourg in 2007.


The eponymous, octopus-out-of-water hero displays as many facets as he has tentacles before returning to ``his quiet life in the sea.'' Ages 4-7. (Aug.)

"...One of the great fabulists and weirdoes of children's book illustration."-Wonderland"This swashbuckling adventure featuring an intrepid octopus brings to mind two 20th-century greats: Jean de Brunhoff's "Babar" and H.A. Rey and Margret Rey's "Curious George"... Witty... Full of drama, ingenuity and friendship, Emile is great fun for readers ages 5-8."-The Wall Street Journal"A welcome return of this captivating, ever-fresh Ungerer classic...Emile's many talents and kind green face will surely endear him to a new generation of readers."-Horn Book
