A charming book that might be characterized as "a silent film between book covers". Follow the fortunes of Clown -- who starts in a garbage can and ends up in a happy family. Master illustrator Quentin Blake has created an irrepressible character, and action-filled plot, and an eloquent story that can be read on several levels -- all without the use of a single word.

From Publishers Weekly
In this tragicomic, wordless picture book, a discarded clown doll escapes from a garbage can, and endeavors to rescue his fellow toys from the trash. "With a few brushstrokes and scribbles of ink, Blake conveys moods, contrasts economic situations?and praises those who appreciate secondhand items," said PW. Ages 3-8.
