Synopsis

There are few things that little children enjoy more than catching grown-ups in a lie. Well, this book is littered with them, turning every general assumption on its head in a completely Topsy Turvy World of blatant falsehoods and conspicuous role reversals. From science and the natural world to time honored children's fairy tales, Atak's book teaches with humor what's right, by highlighting everything wrong in these images as mice chase cats and firemen douse water with flames . . .A wordless book with beautiful illustrations on every page illustrated by one of Germany's best known and loved illustrators, Atak.

In 1989 he co-founded the avantgarde comics group and magazine Renate, and in 1992 his first graphic novel, Atak - The Flowers of Romance, was published. He now lives and works in Berlin and he also holds a Professorship in Illustration at the Kunsthochschule Burg Giebichenstein Halle - an art college in the town of Halle, close to Leipzig in the former East Germany.
