Product description

The great "New Yorker" artist Peter de Seve teams up with the author of bestselling "Toy Boat" in a slightly outrageous fairy tale. The Duchess of Whimsy is fancy and fussy and definitely not ordinary surrounding herself with wild friends, fabulous foods, and fancy dress. The Earl of Norm (ho hum) is completely ordinary, but he adores the Duchess. She ignores him, until the chef gets sick, and her friends have to make a super supper which includes tracking down truffles, spinning sugar stars, and looking for quail eggs. But the Earl is hungry! He sneaks off to an ordinary grilled cheese sandwich and suddenly takes the Duchess s eye. Maybe there s something to simplicity after all. Maybe there s something to the Earl after all . . . This deliciously told and illustrated love story by the remarkable de Seves shows how utterly charming and extraordinary a picture book can be. "
