Known for his beloved children’s classics The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear, artist and writer Eric Carle has done it again! The Nonsense Show is a silly visual experience that introduces kids to the world of surrealism where imagination and reality coexist. A dog tells a man to leave his doghouse and go to the moon? A horse and a rider decide to switch heads? A lion trains humans at the circus?  Welcome to The Nonsense Show!

You don’t need to wonder whether it’s possible or not. Just enjoy the clever wordplay and visual jokes and come see the bird who can’t fly, the fish who can’t swim and the mouse who chases a cat. This abstract adventure will delight kids and parents, too.
