Mishmash' is a narrative poem about a funny mix up that happens amongst a group of animals. These animals refuse to stick to their own conventional sounds and take on the sounds of other animals instead. Here you will find kittens that 'oink' like pigs and ducklings that 'ribbit' like frogs! A truly delightful tale of animal mischief. The author Korney Chukovsky was a renowned Russian writer and poet. This book is illustrated by an award-winning artist Francesca Yarbusova, the wife and collaborator of Yuri Norstein. She was the co-creator of the animated films 'Hedgehog in the Fog' and 'Tale of Tales' - the films that were declared to be the Best Animated Film of All Time. Also available in the Norstein & Yarbusova Collection - a beautiful series of children's picture books based on the art of famous Russian artists and animators Yuri Norstein and Francesca Yarbusova are: 'The Fox and the Hare' and 'The Hedgehog in the Fog'.
