FIDEL SCLAVO’S quirky yet beautifully simple illustrations make this collection of surreal tales a rare treat that recalls the imaginative adventures of Italo Calvino and before him Rudyard Kipling. The Uruguayan artist – recently hailed as one of Latin America’s top graphic artists – creates strikingly modest characters and moments from what could be dreams to accompany the stories of American fabulist Daniel Grandbois in a winning combination of images and words that offer a refreshing departure from a more heavyweight literary world. This sits in the great tradition of EH Shepard and Quentin Blake and is a book worth having. It will lift your spirits and make you laugh- EC
