   schema:reviewBody ""First published in 1905, German poet Christian Morgenstern's Im Reich der Interpunktionen [In the Land of Punctuation] is a brilliant comic poem on language. Morgenstern called it a linguistic caprice; and it is a fun romp, populated by punctuation marks as characters with their own agendas ... and yet the political undertones are unmistakable, suggesting systems of control that go beyond language. Sirish Rao's translation of Morgenstern's text is faithful to the original, while playing with its resonances in a more sinister contemporary light. Set to the brilliant typographic illustrations of Rathna Ramanathan, this is a picture book for all ages that meets at the crossroads of language, design and politics."--Page 4 of cover." ;
