‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Reiner Zimnik
Age Range: 9-11
Reiner Zimnik was a Polish emigrant who wrote and illustrated this book in 1970, inspired by the huge numbers of cranes that he had seen throughout Germany
after the end of the Second World War.
Zimmik’s book, translated from German, is one in a series of vintage children’s books that have been brought back into print in handsome hardback editions by New York Review Books for the delight of contemporary readers and collectors.
