The Nonsense Show / Eric Carle.

Carle, Eric, (author,, illustrator.).


"Ducks growing out of bananas? A mouse catching a cat? What's wrong with this book? Yes, there's something strange, something funny, and even downright preposterous on every page of this book. But it's not a mistake--it's nonsense! And it's also surrealism"-- Provided by publisher.
