The Fate of Fausto


The Fate of Fausto is a stunningly presented, modern-day fable from world-renowned talent Oliver Jeffers.


There was once a man who believed he owned everything and set out to survey what was his. “You are mine,” Fausto said to the flower, the sheep and the mountain, and they bowed before him. But they were not enough for Fausto, so he conquered a boat and set out to sea…
