Nepomuk, Peter Wezel


Senior Swiss artist, illustrator and graphic designer Peter Wezel’s plain and simple tale starts when a pink bird flies by a house, spotting a bright orange fish inside a fishbowl. It is cross-species love at first sight when he leaves and returns with the gift of a worm for this apparently lonely and hungry aquatic creature.

Wezel’s bright crayon colors and modest sketches are rendered with a deliberate childlike naiveté. Nepomuk is a good choice for children and adults alike in need of a story about kindness, sharing and friendship. First published in 1964.
