Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One day, Clown is thrown into the trash, but he doesn't stay there long.

He tries to find someone to take care of his friends, but no one listens.

Then Clown finds someone he can take care of, and together, they make a home for everyone.

Follow the fortunes of Clown-- who starts in a garbage can and ends up in a happy family-- in this perfectly pitched picture book.

Master illustrator Quentin Blake has created an irrepressible character, an action-filled plot, and an eloquent story that can be read on several levels-- all without the use of a single word.

Clown is a 1996 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year.

Horn Book Fanfare Book

Synopsis:

"This story in mime unfolds with lots of action and quiet charm. The deft line drawings, tinted with watercolor washes, indicate character traits and emotions with great sensitivity to form, movement, and detail." --Booklist

Synopsis:

A discarded yet irrepressible toy clown goes on a quest through the city to find a home for himself and his family of unwanted stuffed animals. Full-color illustrations.
