The Fate of Fausto – Oliver Jeffers
Oliver Jeffers has described this book as a painted fable. It features Fausto, a pompous pin-stripe suited character who desires to own and control the natural world: “Trees, you are mine” he shouts revealing himself as a bullying and aggressive. As his rage encompasses everything, the childish tantrum nature of his character is also funny to behold.
Jeffers’ illustrative style is as beautiful as ever but includes more white space in this book than in previous books, giving more space or pause and punctuation.
