The Tiny Visitor

A few days ago I joined an interesting discussion about strangeness in picture books on Roger Sutton's blog. I have to confess that I hadn't heard of Oscar de Mejo before, so I looked around and bought this nice copy of what is apparently his first children's book: a 64-page picture book, published by Pantheon in 1982.

Oscar de Mejo with his first wife, actress Alida Valli.


  1. Ooh, fascinating. I want to see this now. Was it hard to find and purchase?

  2. I bought this funny book the year it was published; I always had it out on my coffee table for my visitors to browse in.
