Children's Book: Duck, Death and the Tulip

Duck, Death and the Tulip by Wolf Erlbruch

I've seen so many amazing children's books at NUCA's library and bookshops here in Norwich. I shoud probably make a post listing some of my discoveries :).

Duck, Death and the Tulip is one of those books that leaves you contemplating once you finish reading it. The story and style are so simple, yet the subject matter is so complicated. I admire author's effort to address such a subject and to challenge the coventional children's books. Children shouldn't be exposed to good and happy things only. They should learn about both bright and dark side of this world early on. Books are one of the ways to make them aware of it. I think adults could benefit from this book as well. So if you get a chance to look through this book, please do. The illustrations and story are great.

Right from the beginning you become fond of both characters
