Tomi Ungerer

Somehow I missed the fact that there is a movie forthcoming about Tomi Ungerer.

Here’s a fetching Weston Woods animated version of his story The Three Robbers.

And here’s a little something about his process:

Tomi Ungerer is a real live wire. His perspective is not for everyone. In fact, he left the country because his career was so buried in controversy. However, he is an essential part of the kids’ book canon, and his work is unique and compelling. If you love a picture book, chances are Tomi Ungerer probably influenced it somehow.
