It's not every day you get to witness the birth of a future classic! TÉLÉRAMA
A rare breath of freedom and poetry. LE MONDE DES LIVRES
The refined pen of this particularly gifted author breaks all the clichés. BIBA
Very clever, oh so subversive without being overly proselytising, we hope this book becomes a classic of children's literature. RICOCHET
Magnificent! LA MARE AUX MOTS
This superb tale is both very modern and very moving. OPALIVRES
Barely published and already timeless! A contagious wind of freedom. FILIATIO
