Author: Tomi Ungerer
This is the beloved story of Emile, a brave and helpful octopus — quick-thinking and multi-talented, Emile is a gifted musician, a brilliant lifeguard and a fearless crime-fighter!
Born in Strasbourg in 1931, Tomi Ungerer landed in New York in 1956 with $60 in his pocket and with a suitcase full of drawings. Overnight he became a star as a caricaturist, illustrator and children's book author and published more than eighty books in ten years. In 1998, Tomi Ungerer was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Award for illustration and has become an internationally renowned artist. He now divides his time between Ireland and Strasbourg, France, where the Musée Tomi Ungerer, a museum devoted exclusively to his work, opened in 2007.
