Read full description of the books The Emperor of Absurdia:Chris Riddell has a really cool style as an artist; ultra-expressive characters, very cartoonish, a flair for the bizarre. And we're talking REALLY bizarre. His novel "Ottoline and the Yellow Cat" was one of the weirdest books for kids I read last year. "Emperor of Absurdia" has some really cool imagery; the Wardrobe Monster looks vaguely like the Yeti, sky fish float in the air near the umbrella trees, and lunch consists of an egg that cracks open to reveal... a baby dragon. At the end we realize that it was all a dream and that the strange creatures from Absurdia are stuffed animals and other assorted debris spread across the "Emperor's" room.
Read information about the authorChris Riddell was born in Cape Town, South Africa, where his father was an Anglican priest and a member of the ANC. The family moved to England in 1963, when Riddell was one year old, and he spent his childhood in a number of different locations, as his father moved between parishes. Both of Riddell's parents continued to be active in the anti-apartheid movement.
Chris Riddell is an internationally acclaimed writer and illustrator whose many awards include the Nestlé Gold Award and two Kate Greenaway Medals—the most prestigious prize for illustration in the UK. He is the creator of more than one hundred books for all ages, including the immensely popular series the Edge Chronicles and his latest chapter book series, starring the irrepressible Ottoline Brown, which School Library Journal called "exceptional." Chris lives in Brighton, England, with his wife and three children where he invents his amazing characters in a very tidy shed in his yard.
