Consisting of idioms (including a few made-up ones), this book presents illustrations that are sweet, funny, thoughtful and beautifully composed. The pictures tell a story about the relationships and emotions that run between and connect humans to other animals. Forceful in language, concept, and color, this book is also big-hearted in how it renders children, animals, their feelings and expressions. Katrin Stangl is a German author, illustrator, graphic designer, and artist. Stangl studied at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig and was a Master's student of the artist Volker Pfuller.
