Who doesn’t want to peak into the different apartments of a high-rising building? Tom Schamp satisfies our curiosity with his teeming leporello book.
On the ground floor there’s a store with many hats and all kinds of headdresses. On the first floor lives a lion, who loves fast cars; on the second a sailor, in whose bathtub a mermaid is taking a bath; and on the third floor an interesting couple who is playing chess. Above their heads a diligent gardener is watering his plants and further up a big, mysterious cat is getting comfortable. Just when you think it doesn’t go any higher, this is where an old lady lives with an impressive library. Finally, everybody meets on the roof for a joyful party and a potluck. There’s even Pancake-Pie. Tom Schamp tells innumerous stories about the people living in this house – without any words.
