The Liszts

Publisher: Andersen Press

Review

Every member of the Liszt family makes lists - lists about ghastly illnesses, dreaded chores, cheeses, Bowie songs. But with all of their time spent categorising the world, what will they do when an unexpected visitor arrives?

Perfect for fans of Lemony Snicket, Edward Gorey and The Addams Family, this is a picture book to treasure. Julia Sarda's illustrations are fabulously detailed and stylishly anarchic, and Kyo Maclear's story about an unusual family has the wonderfully surreal feel of an independent film. Described as a 'meditation on spontaneity', this is something older readers will return to again and again.
