Beloved Austrian author/illustrator Erwin Moser’s Boris stories—told with humor and heart—all in one volume for the first time in English

Boris is a special cat! Be it spring, summer, fall, or winter, Boris and his friends experience big and little adventures every day, often without even looking for them!

From driving a bathtub to pretending to be a scarecrow to helping a friend, these charming comic-book style mini-stories—told in six pictures—are perfect for read aloud and beginning reader fun.

Erwin Moser (1954-2017) was born in Vienna, Austria and grew up in a village on Lake Neusiedl. He trained?as a typesetter, and in 1980 began to create and illustrate his enchanting tales. For more than thirty years he published numerous children’s picture books, for which he received many awards and was shortlisted for the German Youth Literature Prize. His books, imaginatively written and illustrated, are remarkable for their warmheartedness and have earned their place in the canon of German-language literature for children and young adults. In 2014 the Erwin Moser Museum was opened in his home village of Gols.
