Yes, there s something strange, somethingfunny and even downright preposterous onevery page of this book.But it s not a mistake it s nonsense! And it s also surrealism.Nonsense lies at the heart of manybeloved nursery rhymes. Children readilyaccept odd statements like the cowjumped over the moon and the dish ranaway with the spoon. This fanciful bendingof reality is also basic to surrealism. In this book, nonsense and surrealismcombine to spark creativity and imagination. What s true? What s impossible? What s absolutelyabsurd?From Eric Carle, creator of the classic, 'TheVery Hungry Caterpillar, ' comes a book to makechildren laugh and think, preparing them for alifetime of loving both words and art. Following on the heels of'The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse'(an homage to the artist Franz Marc and expressionism) and'Friends,' with its semi-abstract artwork, 'The Nonsense Show'forms a trilogy of sorts, dedicated to introducing young readers to different styles of artwork without ever overlooking the need to, first and foremost, appeal to children and their love of play. One of the true legends and pioneers of picture book making continues to expand and challenge the genre.
