Lola and Fred prove that differences in character and appearance—or even species—do not have to get in the way of reaching a goal.
Lola & Fred is the first picture book of a series where a new character is introduced with each subsequent publication. This text-free book allows viewers to tell the story in their own words. Mr. Heuer was inspired to illustrate text-free to avoid the language barriers of Switzerland, his native country, which has four national languages. Originally published in Switzerland, Lola & Fred is being introduced to North America for the first time.
Born in Bern, Switzerland, in 1966, Christoph Heuer is an architect, cartoonist, and illustrator who currently resides in Zurich. In 1998 he started his own business called Pul Cartoons. His inspiration to create text-free children's books derived from his goal to avoid the language barriers of Switzerland having four national languages.
