Reissue of Tomi Ungerer’s The Three Robbers

Three robbers

Tomi Ungerer's children's book The Three Robbers has been reissued in English. The book was originally written in 1961 and shows, through 20 fantastic illustrations, the story of three gruesome robbers who encounter an orphan girl, Tiffany, who is not afraid of them at all. 

The book is the first of twenty children's book titles by Ungerer being reissued by Phaidon, who describe him as 'the most famous children's book author you've never heard of'. Ungerer's prolific illustrative career in fact stretches far beyond kids' stories, as he also produced posters protesting the war in Vietnam and erotic adult titles. 

If you would prefer to stick to his child friendly offerings, this book is for sale for £9.95.
