PRESS REVIEWS (extracts)

Recommended by LES MATERNELLES on France 5
A story that encourages us to live our aspirations freely by daring to distance ourselves from norms. REVUE SILENCE
A beautiful book about identity, choice, independence and freedom. Gaël Aymon's writing is funny and provocative. Well done! ŒIL D'AILLEURS
Great and funny! LA MARE AUX MOTS
Faced with the terrifying shelves of Lego and lolita make-up boxes, "Giga-Boy" and "Contes d'un autre genre" attack stereotypes with humour. CHRISTIAN TESTIMONY
Giga-Boy is terribly endearing! A lovely plea for autonomy and free will. A formidably effective album! ENFANTIPAGES
