Eugene Ionesco "Story Number 1"



Another one of our favorites is Eugene Ionesco's "Story Number 1" with beautiful illustrations by Etienne Delessert (check out his animation). It's the story of a Josette, a funny little girl, her parents who have had too much dancing, wine & food to wake up & the nanny, Jacqueline. This is totally out of print and is easily worth the $25 - $40 it can run. The story is hilarious and the pictures are an absolutely psychedelic surreal freak-out! I only found two people selling the book and I included the links below. (This is an excellent gift!) **oh, and it is for sure not just for children under 3!**

Sorry, but the e-mail link didn't work so I'll answer you here.

To make a store you must first join the Amazon Associates program. There's a link all the way at the bottom of Amazon's home page that says "Join Associates." That'll get you started.

If you want more info, you can write to me - annulla AT gmail . com.
