Description

This title is set in Paris in 1492. Hideously deformed, deaf and near blind, the hunchback Quasimodo lives in the Notre-Dame bell tower. Beneath him in the square, the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda dances for the crowds. The pious, misogynistic archdeacon Frollo watches from his cell. As his desire turns to obsession, so the story marches inexorably towards a final act of terrible revenge...David Hughes' grotesque and beautiful illustrations use a mixture of photography and drawing to create a truly striking visual experience, whilst Jan Needle's newly translated and sensitively re-edited text opens up this classic tale to a younger audience for the first time.

Author Biography

Victor Hugo (1802-1885) was a novelist, poet and dramatist, and one of the most important writers of the French Romantic movement. Jan Needle has been shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize, and is the author of several children's books, including My Mate Shofiq and Wild Wood. David Hughes' artwork has appeared in Punch, The Observer and The New Yorker. He received high acclaim for Strat and Chatto by Jan Mark, winner of the Mother Goose Award in 1990, and his award-winning illustrated version of Shakespeare's Othello.
