The Fate of Fausto
The Fate of Fausto | Oliver Jeffers
2 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
A quirky, cautionary tale from beloved New York Times bestselling picture book creator Oliver Jeffers! There was once a man who believed he owned everything and set out to survey what was his. "You are mine," Fausto said to the flower, the sheep, and the mountain, and they all bowed before him. But they were not enough for Fausto, so he conquered a boat and set out to sea . . . Combining bold art and powerful prose, and working in traditional lithographic printmaking techniques for the first time, world-renowned talent Oliver Jeffers has created a poignant modern-day fable to touch the hearts of adults and children alike. Praise for The Fate of Fausto: -"Boldly conceived and gracefully executed."--Publishers Weekly

This letter by Kurt Vonnegut (2005) is the end page in this cautionary fable.

This is a compelling picture book for a five minute read. It's an interesting statement of wants and needs, and speaking truth to power.

MySharonaK I love it! Posted this a while ago. The letter and the book are just wonderful 2w
Bette @MySharonaK Maybe I ordered it because of your post! (I lose track where I see things) (if so, thank you.) it was such an amazing surprise. I really loved it and kept going back to look at it again. 2w
MySharonaK @Bette I know what you mean! I just keep seeing more and more things and order them but then sadly lose track of where I saw them. I agree with you about this one. It‘s really beautiful, and I think people of all ages can get something from reading it 2w
