Welcome to Absurdia: a strange and wonderful land where nothing is quite what it seems. Trees are birds, umbrellas are trees, and the sky is thick with snoring fish. Join one small boy as he tumbles out of bed into a crazy dreamland of wardrobe monsters, dragons - and amazing adventure.

This gloriously rich and beautiful picture book comes from the award winning Chris Riddell, a uniquely talented author/illustrator at the height of his powers. With a story to enchant the youngest readers, and pictures to gasp and pore over whatever your age, The Emperor of Absurdia is an extraordinary example of wonderful storytelling. Available in mini hardback edition, it's a perfect gift and an ideal stocking filler.

Also available as a mini hardback: Wendel and the Robots.
