Overview

After his work for adults was censored in the late 1920s, Daniil Kharms (1905-42) began writing the stories and poems that would establish him as one of today's best-loved children's authors in Russia. This, the first English-language selection of his children's work, showcases ten of his most popular creations, including a hilarious send-up of Aesopian fables featuring a five-legged crow who runs into a fox one day while out shopping for coffee - a story that exemplifies Kharms's genius for absurd comedy. Accompanying the translations are pictures every bit as wild and crazy as the texts they illustrate.
