House By the Sea - Iron & Wine cover by Cyrièle

Wolf Erlbruch Illustration

The Wolf Erlbruch books are great.  There's a story about a duck who makes friends with Death, and another about a mole who wakes up with a poo on his head.  "Did you do this on my head?", he asks each animal, whilst pointing at his unfortunate hat.

Selma by Jutta Bauer

Synopsis:  Selma is asked: What is happiness? She says: Happiness is eating a little grass at sunrise, playing with the children until lunchtime, a little exercise after lunch, a little more grass, a chat with her neighbour Mrs Miller in the evening and then a lovely long sleep.

And if she had more time? She would eat a little grass? play with her children until lunchtime, do a little exercise after lunch, eat a little more grass, have a chat with her neighbour Mrs Miller in the evening and then have a lovely long sleep.

And if she won a million dollars? She would eat a little grass, play with her children, do a little exercise...

'Donkeys' by Adelheid Dahimène, Illustrated by Heide Stöllinger

Synopsis:   Two donkeys who have loved each other for many years have a silly argument. They each storm off to find someone smarter and better. Finally, after they have met a ridiculously small goat, a too-squishy hippo and an over-clingy ostrich, a lone camel in the desert helps the two donkeys realise that they really do belong together.

David Shrigley

David Shrigley: ‘A few years ago I went to St Moritz in Switzerland. I decided to build a non-conformist snowman. When the art collector who owned the hotel saw it he became very excited that I had created an artwork in the grounds of his hotel. I had to explain that it was not an artwork – it was just a snowman. It’s an easy mistake to make’
