We were standing on the edge of Lakeview Rock, this gigantic rock formation that loomed up over one end of the lake, giving us a great view of just about everything from up ed on: Ap Though best known in recent years as the author of fiscal entertainments (Zero Coupon, , etc.), the Canadian-born Erdman is a bona fide economist and former Swiss banker.

Many illustration commissions followed, including iconic posters for London Transport, before the publication of Borka: the Adventures of a Goose with No Feathers, John’s first book for children. It won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal for illustration and heralded the beginning of an extraordinary career spanning 50 years.   Tug-of-War: This touching story plainly told provides a captivating view of wartime Serbia, its tensions, and its effects on ordinary working people.
