Review: The Ear

The Ear

by Piret Raud  (Author)


By far the most unusual book I’ve come across in a long while, The Ear is a strange and wondrous tale of Van Gogh’s severed ear and what it will do with itself now that it lacks a head. It reads like a fable or folk tale–polite, but very deep–and has immense power in the illustration details, arguably as curious as the storyline itself. I do have to disagree with the age suggestion being at 4-8 years. I think that the tale would be interesting for younger kids, but would be better as an awesome pairing to a Van Gogh appreciation class of any age or a gift to any mature art lover.
