A Story about a Rabbit

A Story about a Rabbit is one of the very few literary texts for children written by the famous German avant-garde artist Kurt Schwitters. In this playful short tale, the rabbit (who keeps on hopping around the corner even when there is no corner around) goes through a series of metamorphoses: he becomes a bird, a fish, a pig, a hippopotamus, a fly, and even a steamship. In this way, the author shows the road to maturity as a process of role playing; at the same time he explores the possibilities of one of the oldest motives of western art: the metamorphosis as a fundamental premise of artistic creation. Although able to provoke a grown-up reader to serious thought, Schwitters’ story, with its quick pace and fine humour, stays light and accessible to the youngest audience.

The book ends with A Story about Kurt Schwitters, written by Sanja Lovrenčić; mimicking Schwitters’ style, she offers a coherent biography of the great twentieth century artist, written in a simple way, suitable for children.

The book is illustrated by Mingsheng Pi, a Chinese artist living in Zagreb, whose minimalist but suggestive style, based on traditional Chinese painting, corresponds in an unexpected way with Schwitters’ text.
