This is an auction for THE SPOTTED UNICORN: THE DIARIES OF CHI WEN TZU, by Roger McGough.

Exquisite drawings throughout by Satoshi Kitnura.

"Chi Wen Tzu always thought three times before taking action. Twice would have been quite enough."
- Confucius

Amazon.com reviews:

"Inspired by the teachings of Confucius, this book takes the form of a diary written by Chi Wen Tzu, a poet and inventor. Grappling with his daily life, this genius confronts himself at the end of each diary entry with three courses of action, none of which is the obvious course. Through his journal we learn more about ancient China than perhaps is good for us. This is McGough at his hilarious and cleverest best, with inspired drawings by Satoshi Kitamura."

"This is a book I've owned for years and every year, I pull it off the shelf in an effort to weed my collection and every year I read it and put it back. It makes me titter and roll my eyes at the more excruciating puns (in that enjoyable way where you simultaneously hate/like the wordplay to which you've just been subjected). It's a little nugget of strange fun, I guess."

Hardback 1998.
