Léon art & stories

Set up in Bordeaux (France) in 2012, Léon art & stories is an independant publishing house specialised in children's books whose ambition is to bring younger readers to approach art through fiction.

When facing a work of art, the language barrier weighs nothing as the emotional impact is immediate: thrilled, surprised, moved, dazzled, children shift from the everyday world into the realm of art. Brought to life through fiction, the works of art speak to all.

Fiction becomes a gateway to an aesthetic purpose for 5-10 year-old children.

The graphic designer, Julien Boudaud creates the bold layouts.

Our Series

Mini Léon series

From 3 years up

Art, English and Fun, a vitamin-packed cocktail

Léon is the young reader's companion: Alternating humour, courage and reverie, he plays with art in a most inventive way. Each book explores a theme through 13 works of art from various periods and cultures. A sentence in both French and English emphasizes the interaction on each page. At the end of the book is a documented double-page rich with ideas of activities.

Art-Fiction series

From 6 years up

Fiction as a path to art and beauty

Children approach life essentially through their emotions and fiction is a privileged way to help them understand the world and build their own character. This is how the Art Fiction series leads the reader along a story which develops using details in the paintings. At the end of the book, a documented double-page brings answers to the reader's questions.
