About the Author

Tomi Ungerer, born in Strasbourg in 1931, landed in New York in 1956 with $60 in his pocket and with a suitcase full of drawings. Overnight he became a star as a caricaturist, illustrator and children's book author and published more than 80 books in ten years. As a graphic artist he created advertising campaigns for Willy Brandt and The New York Times. In 1998, Tomi Ungerer was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Award for illustration and has become an internationally renowned artist. He now divides his time between Strasbourg and Ireland.

Reviews

``One bitter, black night,'' three ferocious highwaymen meet their match in a spunky orphan named Tiffany; Ungerer's bold, fanciful artwork, rendered primarily in black and deep blue tones, enliven this cautionary tale of foul deeds transmogrified. Ages 5-8. (Sept.)

'Ungerer pokes gentle fun at self-important adults who are afraid of anything or anyone who is different or unfamiliar. His ability to capture the absurd [ - ] and inject [ - ] subtle humour make this book a timeless classic which deserves to be available to a whole new audience of children (and adults too).' Outside In, February 2011 'The new editions look fresh and inviting, with creamy backdrop pages, crisp colors, and almost tangible textures. The artwork - with its sleek graphic elements and breathtaking color blends - has an amazingly contemporary feel.' School Library Journal [USA], July 2009 'Ungerer's artwork is distinguished by bright colors and how own distinctive style, and his stories are a beguiling mix of humour, wisdom and worthwhile messages.; Buffalo News [USA], June 2009
