Product Description

Exclusive to Vintage ClassicsTerrific comic illustrations by Fritz WengerAndre Maurois was born in France in 1885. He worked in his father's textile factory as a young man and when World War One broke out he was employed as an interpreter, then as a liaison officer to the British Army. He wrote many novels for adults. Fattypuffs and Thinifers is his only book for children.

'Two Surface-dwellers. Two! Hes a Fattypuff and youre a Thinifer. Theres no doubt about it!

This is the tale of two brothers. Edmund is a little on the plump side and Terry is a bit of a rake. When they discover the countries under the Earth they are divided and sent to the warring kingdoms of the Fattypuffs and the Thinifers. The Fattypuffs eat hourly with light snacks in between. The Thinifers like nothing more than discipline and work six days a week. Whether you are a jolly Fattypuff or a driven Thinifer you’ll be rooting for the brothers to bring peace to the countries under the Earth.

Includes exclusive material: In the Backstory you can take the quiz to find out if you’re a Fattypuff or a Thinifer!
