Story Time: the Polar Bear

Today, I'm going to write about a book that is different from what we are use to in the world of children's literature: "The Polar Bear" byJenni Desmond. The author educates us about endangered animals: her first book was about whales (2015) and she recently published her last one about elephants (2018). Her writing is halfway between story and documentary : we follow a little girl's adventure while discovering these fascinating animals. The book starts with: "Once upon a time, a child took a book from the shelf and started to read ...". The book is the beginning of the adventure. What better way to give...

Nobody seems to really know the wolf, but everyone heard about his icy cry and crazy eyes. The inhabitants of the forest live constantly in a fear that is profitably maintained, especially as animals disappear regularly. But one day the wolf shows up, without...

Melvin the fish is the hero of a book!

Book review Petit loulou's news Story time

Melvin the fish is the hero of a book!

About a year ago, DK publishing contacted me because they intended to feature my Melvin the fish in their new book, "Peekaboo under the sea". For this, they asked me to make two different expressions to Melvin: his little playful eye, but also a wide open eye, because it is really more convenient to play hide and seek ... A year after sending Melvin I had the treat to receive a small package from DK. The book was ready to be distributed! I then discovered that Melvin was the main character. It was such an amazing surprise! The book, of a very classical composition,...

Story Time: Touch Think Learn ABC by Xavier Deneux

Touch Think Learn: ABC by Xavier Deneux is a beautiful and unique tactile book to introduce your little one to the alphabet. I was immediately drawn to it when I caught sight of this beautiful, quite imposing book, on the library shelves. Its vivid and colourful illustrations will delight everyone in the family.  Each page has raised die cut letters or shapes  so your little one can enjoy running their little fingers over them. It's a great way to get familiar with the alphabet. Each letter of the alphabet is associated with an image and a word.  If you don't know Xavier Deneux's work her...
