Magnificent books, poetic, rich, beautiful and intelligent. You must discover them all!


Tim and No-Name

based on Paul Klee / text: Nancy Guilbert / illustrations: Grégoire Vallancien

In this beautiful book is Leon, the mascot of the publisher. He make us enter in Paul Klee’s work, a geometric and colorful one. Tim’s story is illustrated by extracts of ten paintings by the artist. It is a great story about prejudice to discover or rediscover the famous painter. Details of paintings by Klee, pretty drawings and poetic text.


The Teeny-Weenies and the Fairy-cab-car

based on Wassily Kandinsky / text: Helene Kérillis / illustrations: Guillaume Trannoy

The story depicts a world in which the law of the jungle, far from being the best, is overcome by tilltel petty creatures who think, invent, organize, unite and take account of the other. A world in which the colors and music make us discover the universe of Kandinsky. The colors are sublime, and, as in every book of the series, the details of the master's paintings mix with pretty drawings and a rich, poetic narrative.

Tim and No-Name

It is a very well thought out story that fits perfectly with the paintings. It tells a message of tolerance to children: do not judge people by their physical appearance, their differences, their imperfection, do not listen to or believe rumors. This album is perfect to show what can happen when someone is banned because he is a foreigner. A topical theme, unfortunately ... As usual in this series, you can find additional information about the artist, historic background and inspiration of the author at the end of the book and all the works that illustrate the story are reproducted.

 A heart stroke book you must read and re-read !

In these two books from the series Mini Leon, we meet again with the little chameleon, the publishing house mascot. Each double page provides details of a master’s painting and a compelling illustration with a poetic and funny comment. At the end of the book, there are brief and clear notes. Here is the cutest little books to cultivate, to marvel and to have fun: an interesting opening on painting, echoing literature, in French and in English.

Two comic strip manner and colourful books, to develop sensitivity to art and observation in very young readers.

Small books but incredibly strong!

Under the Great wave

Some books are nuggets, as this one proves to be.

The text is poetic, rigorous, each word is carefully chosen and offers the reader a journey to the heart of Japan. This is a form of writing called Haiku: small poems composed of 17 syllables.

Parents reading this rich book can go further: what is a tsunami? A print? At the end of the book, eight questions are asked and simple answers are made.

This book is stunning, upsetting. It makes people curious and makes you want to know everything about Japan, and Mount Fuji legends.
