By Eno Raud
Illustrated by Pritt Pärn
Translated from the Estonian by Adam Cullen
In a far away land live a bright, industrious peoplecalled the Gothamites, model citizens endlessly called upon for advice by other communities. Much to the Gothamites’ chagrin, they’re left with no time of their own. Fed up, they hit on a solution: they’ll become the most foolish people around—after all, no one wants foolish advice. Priit Pärn’s detailed illustrations and Eno Raud’s wordplay brilliantly capture the havoc and hilarity that ensue. By one of Estonia’s most cherished children’s authors, The Gothamites is the spirited tale of a town that decides to make daily life a bit more difficult.
