Ballad of Death

A double-spread, packed with animals, creatures and characters sets the tone for this fantastically illus- trated ballad. A king wants to imprison 'Death', so making every man's wish for eternal life come true. But the world gets too full and celebrating eternal life eventually gets boring.

Koos Meinderts & Harrie Jekkers have written a thought-provoking story suitable for all ages, a rhyming ballad with the power of a timeless fairytale. Central theme: what you wish for is not always good for you. Piet Grobler has done a marvellous job illustrating the exotic creatures with the refined elegance that is his hallmark.
