I. M. Kidding was born in Vienna, where he studied music and drama. He worked as an actor and director in the theatre and radio and as a journalist. He set up his own puppet company and toured New Zealand and Australia, which is probably where he became familiar with Mr. Punch. He has written a variety of books for adults and children under various pen names.
Hello! This is Punch!
Of course you know me. Everybody knows Mister Punch.
I have performed more shows than you have eaten dinners. And people all over the world love me. I decided to write my biography. It tells you everything about me (well…not exactly everything!). From my early assumed beginnings with the good old Romans and the better older Greeks to my triumphal stardom in England.
