I first read this gem of a book when I was in my third year at university. I have read it every year since then. I have started to read it Chinese, but that is a whole different project on its own. Here are some of my favourite quotes and illustrations.
This is the first page where the boy asks grownups what he drew. They all reply a hat, and he is rather disappointed that none of them can see that it is clearly a boa constrictor eating an elephant.
There is nothing quite like a sunset.
Words to live by.
