King Plumpapuff suggests that you read this charming tale surrounded by plumped-up cushions whilst consuming creampuffs
Andre Maurois was born in France in 1885. He worked in his father's textile factory as a young man and when World War One broke out he was employed as an interpreter, then as a liaison officer to the British Army. He wrote many novels for adults. Fattypuffs and Thinifers is his only book for children.
"An ingenious moral tale" * Glasgow Herald * "This classic story, first published in 1930, immediately seduces the reader with its hilarious world existing just under the surface of our own... Full of good jokes - mainly at the expense of the Fattypuffs - and good drawings by Fritz Wegner" * Guardian * "One of our favourite books as children" -- Kevin Crossley-Holland * Daily Mail * "Wegner's drawings of the lands of the Thinifer and Fattypuff people are heartwarming, imaginative and kind, but, more importantly, they are very funny" -- Rob Ryan * The Times *
