"Erlbruch's mastery lies in the apparent effortlessness and remarkable delicacy of touch with which he makes such a huge impact on the reader and viewer." (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
Heinz Janisch has written 24 micro-stories reminiscent of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's The Little Prince – seemingly simple but profound tales that will reverberate in the mind of the reader long after he has put this slim volume down. This lasting impression is re-enforced by the illustrations of Wolf Erlbruch, whose recent Ente, Tod und Tulpe is further proof of his unique knack for capturing the great themes of life with unequalled intelligence and empathy.
