Description
This quirky tale from 1950 is the story of Mr. Rouse, who has decided to build himself a house, though the process is much longer and more detailed than Mr. Rouse envisions: "Mr. Builder, I'm not a bird, you know; how could I live in a house made of leaves?" Wordplay and absurdity abound in this tiny tome for readers 6 and up from Polish avant-garde artists Stefan and Franciszka Themerson, who fled to London in World War II. In a blend of poetry and pragmatism, illustrated with delightful pen-and-ink drawings, Mr. Rouse contends with building materials, transportation, lighting, and plumbing, while encountering quarreling stairs and dapper gutters on his way.
