“Last week a lady checked her baggage:
A suitcase,
A hatbox,
A couch,
A painting, a package, a pouch,
And last but not least, one cute little pooch.”

But will the baggage reach its destination? Follow the fate of the lady, her luggage and her cute little pooch in this charming and stunningly illustrated caper.

Baggage was first published in Russia in 1926 as part of a plan for a new style of picture book, established by the Commissariat of Enlightenment to educate the children of the revolution. It is the product of the exceptional and fruitful collaboration between the two leaders of the movement, the poet and writer, Samuil Marshak, and the avant-garde artist, Vladimir Lebedev.

Samuil Marshak (1887-1964) was a Russian and Soviet writer, translator and children's poet. Vladimir Lebedev (1891-1967) was a Russian and Soviet painter and graphic artist. Together they collaborated on a ream of beautiful books including Tale About a Foolish Mouse, Book of Many Colours and The Circus and Ice Cream.
