"Pour moi, s'il devait y avoir un paradis, ce serait une bibliothèque", confiait à l'AFP en 2016 Tomi Ungerer. L'artiste est bien connu pour ses ouvrages de littérature pour jeunes et enfants comme: Les Trois Brigands, Le Géant de Zéralda, Jean de la Lune, Otto, Pas de baiser pour maman, Flix, Le Nuage bleu, etc... dont le dernier titré "Ni Oui Ni Non'', a été publié en mars 2018 à l'école des loisirs en France". Il se définissait comme un "sans-bacho", s'étant "élevé par la lecture" et un "pessimiste joyeux". Son oeuvre est riche de 30 000 à 40 000 dessins. L'artiste alsacien a aussi marqué les esprits à travers des dessins érotiques, des peintures satiriques et des affiches politiques. Tomi Ungerer a donné plus de 11 000 dessins originaux, des sculptures, des jouets et des livres au musée qui lui est consacré à Strasbourg, sa ville natale. Il est contre la ségrégation raciale, la guerre au Vietnam, le nucléaire, l'élection de Donald Trump ... et a travaillé aussi bien en français qu'en anglais et en allemand. Né en 1931 dans une famille d'horlogers, Tomi Ungerer - Jean-Thomas de son vrai prénom - a pourtant grandi dans une atmosphère très sombre.
