Let's Read! The Emperor of Absurdia

A magical early reader adapted from a best-loved picture book by Chris Riddell. Welcome to Absurdia: a strange and wonderful land. Trees are birds, umbrellas are trees, and the sky is thick with snoring fish. Join one boy as he tumbles out of bed into a dreamland of wardrobe monsters and dragons!

This zingy colour reader allows your child to enjoy a favourite story in a format created especially for them. It contains the complete story and original illustrations, but using simple typefaces and a navigable design they can easily read alone, making them thrilled and proud.
