The Seven Wonders Of Mr. Clutterbuck
(Herra Hakkaraisen seitsemän ihmettä)

 

See and experience the Seven Wonders of the World with a chronic sleepwalker as your guide!

Mr. Clutterbuck has won a trip around the world in a department store raffle, and the folks from Pawchester come along for the trip. In Egypt, the pyramids and mummies intrude on Mr. Clutterbuck’s dreams. He wraps himself up in toilet paper in the hotel bathroom and traipses toward the pyramids in the moonlight. The rest is history…

In India, the Taj Mahal enchants all the travelers from Pawchester. Mr. Clutterbuck gets the cows to follow him and the cobras to tie themselves in knots with his flute. In Rio, he falls for a Brazilian soccer player and solves Signora Elvira’s Carneval costume problems with a penalty kick.

Venice, the stone faces of Easter Island, the waterfalls of Niagara, and the Great Wall of China make an indelible impression on the crew, too. And when Mr. Clutterbuck gets home and shows the pictures of the trip to his mother, he gets quite a surprise. He’s left his tracks in more places in the world than he had realized…

Mauri Kunnas directs his transcendent drawing talents at depicting the greatest sights that the world has to offer. His newest picture book has plenty of facts, too, and delightful humour.
