An off-the-wall lesson about the value of facts… Children will laugh, be encouraged to read and be glad to Know Better.
A new favourite in our house… full of wit and exuberance, perfect for visually sophisticated modern children.
OHora’s scratchy, comically stiff figures and poker-faced humor beautifully embody the tale’s essential absurdity. And the lemmings’ final victory affirms that progress is possible even for the terminally silly.
