También me hubiese encantado que las páginas fuesen más grandes para poderme sumergir aún más en los dibujos: para notar mejor el tacto de la moqueta, la rugosidad del papel de pared, el calor de la chimenea de ladrillo, el silbido de la tetera. Pues, ahora que he leído esta novela gráfica, me resulta difícil creer que quienes escribieran aquella escena no se inspirasen en este librito: como mínimo coincide que ambas historias son las postales que resumen una vida a lo largo de las décadas y están contadas desde una nostalgia dulcísima y un humor lleno de ternura. Beautiful illustrations, lovely story that may make you think of your own parents or grandparents (I did of mine, at least). On the other hand, I loved Ernest - he was a passionate man who liked to rub his wife up the wrong way at times, just to see her reaction.

The illustrations were beautiful and reminiscent of Briggs' other masterpiece, The Snowman, and the ending was very, very poignant. We take pride in offering a wide selection of used books, from classics to hidden gems, ensuring there is something for every literary palate. Ze trouwden, kregen hun zoon Raymond in 1934, tot hun dood, binnen enkele maanden na elkaar, in 1971. Such a lovely little thing, but you really should *not* finish reading it right before your break is over, because it will make you cry and then you'll have to go back to work and be all, like, "Hey man, what's up?

It had its North American premiere at the 2017 Palm Springs International Film Festival by its US distributors, and was chosen by an audience vote to be screened in the "Best of the Fest" on the final day. Lo stile di Raymond Briggs non rientra nei miei preferiti, ma devo dire che più andavo avanti con la storia, più questi disegni tondi e pieni con questi colori pacati mi sembravano adatti, anzi, perfetti, per la storia autobiografica raccontata dall’autore.

Dahl's books are populated with unfortunate children who become wounded but wiser by their adventures, such as James and the Giant Peach, The Witches, and so on. Nothing is invented, nothing embroidered - this is the reality of two decent, ordinary lives of two people who, as Briggs tells the story, become representative of us all.Although Ernest and his wife were the models for Jim and Hilda in "When the Wind Blows", they are spared the violence and devastation of a nuclear holocaust and allowed to see out their days in peace (despite an ill-placed Morrison shelter almost doing for them during World War 2). Alabo la capacidad del autor para condensar casi un siglo en poco más de cien páginas, pero ojalá nos hubiera dado más detalles, más anécdotas, más de ese precioso amor. The book is a piece of social history; we see the dark days of the Second World War, the birth of the Welfare State, the advent of television and all the changes which were so exhilarating and bewildering for Ethel and Ernest. A celebrated author and illustrator, Raymond Briggs’ works include the seasonal classics, Father Christmas and The Snowman as well as Fungus the Bogeyman.

Overall a near fine copy and rare to find signed without dedication by Raymond Briggs to the title page. However, Briggs continued to produce humour for children, in works such as the Unlucky Wally series and The Bear. Ethel e Ernest è un fumetto che sa di casa in ogni pagina; si possono sentire le risate, le discussioni, i rumori dei lavori, il profumo del cibo, l’acqua che scorre, le risate di un bambino. This book was turned into a two-handed radio play with Peter Sallis in the male lead role, and subsequently an animated film, featuring John Mills and Peggy Ashcroft.It did make me feel a bit melancholy, maybe because it is not glamorous at all and shows the life of many ordinary working class people in the 20th century. Also discernible is Ethel's sensitivity to class distinctions, which was significant of a bygone era. El ilustrador Raymond Briggs hace un homenaje gráfico a la relación de sus padres y cuenta la historia del matrimonio desde que se conocen hasta el fallecimiento de ambos.
