Tomi Ungerer Re-appreciation


Tomi Ungerer, writer of over 150 books, illustrator, engineer and designer of a cat-shaped kindergarten, considers himself “basically an author,” amidst all his varying accomplishments. This NY Times article features an excerpt from an interview.

Recently, his career has been experiencing a resurgence of appreciation with some of his children’s books being republished and a documentary in the making, as well as a retrospective at the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Art in Amherst, Massachusetts.
