Fantastic things change into usual, the supernatural is described as the most natural; and everyday life is turned into an extraordinary and interesting fancy world ... Yes that is the way of the author: to give thrilling adventures, nothing but thrilling adventures.
By Eno Raud
Illustrated by Pritt Pärn
Translated from the Estonian by Adam Cullen
In a faraway land live a bright, industrious people called the Gothamites. They are known for being model citizens, so much so that other communities constantly call upon them for advice, leaving the Gothamites with no time for themselves. Fed up, they hit on a solution: they’ll become the most foolish people around: after all, no one wants foolish advice. Chaos ensues, brilliantly captured by Eno Raud’s wordplay and Priit Pärn’s crowded illustrations. From one of Estonia’s most cherished children’s authors comes the spirited tale of a town that decides to wreak havoc in hilarious fashion.
