Christoph Niemann — The Pet Dragon: A story about Adventure, Friendship, and Chinese Characters — Greenwillow Books, 2008, 40 pp. ISBN 978-006-157776-5
I greatly appreciate Niemann’s graphic style. He’s original and kept his playful side. This short book—a kids’ book—is full of his odd poetry and graphic genius. The Pet Dragon is built around the analogies between what we can imagine chinese character represents and pictograms. A short à la Petit Prince story, just a lot less pretentious.
