NE W TITLE
Lilio is born in a salad. He is ugly and looks like nothing. He has yet
no legs, no head, arms or hands… “But Lilio is smart and resolute.
During his trip, he will meet all sorts of characters and gradually
transform but to be truly someone… it lacks a heart. And that is
not so easy to find… A gentle and poetic fable that addresses itself
to the construction and the importance of other, our meetings, our
experiences in the performance of our being.

Le petit bonhomme et le monde
The little man and the world
Sylvie Neeman
Ingrid Godon
6+, 18 x 24 cm, 44p., 14.90 €
NE W TITLE
This is the story of a little man in his glass ball. But one day he
leaves… Faced with an other reality, the little guy doesn’t recognize
anything more: the tree of the snowball is very different, the dog
too, even the snow is not cold like the one he knows. Then he
found a house inhabited by “others” like him. And he decided
to stay. But sometimes he thinks that “it was better there…”. A
questioning of our relationship with reality. Is my reality the reality
of everyone? Is there a truth? Do the other apprehends things in
the same way as me?
An album between philosophy and poetry.
Sylvie Neeman was born in Lausanne in 1963. After a
bachelor’s degree in literature and the birth of her two
daugthers she progressively specialized in children’s
literature. She is in charge of “Parole”, the magazine of the

6+, 18 x 24 cm, 44p., 14.90 €
Sold to USA, Korea, Germany, Spanish worlwide and Simple Chinese
A young boy and an older one talk. The young boy would like do to
something big, but not as big as a mountain, « it’s too big », not as
big as an elephant, « it’s too grey », not as big as a tower or a house,
but something as big as a lighthouse with the sea and some light, “but
not exactly”. Then the older boy suggests to go for a walk by the sea
so that they can think. A tasty talk between the young boy who has
trouble clearly expressing what he would like and the older one who
tries to guess his desires.

Sold to Spanish worlwide
Tina works on a boat, she cleans the cabins, she makes the beds,
she cleans the windows. Sometimes, there is no window in the
cabins, thus Tina hangs on the wall a big picture where the sea
and the sky can be seen; it is almost the same. Tina has a lover; he
is a cook. All day long, he peels carrots, cuts some zucchini, and
every night, he cooks pasta with tomato sauce, flowers and ice
creams. But his specialty is fish, the real one, not the one cut in
small rectangles. Antonio also works in a boat, but not on Tina’s
one. Then they don’t see each other so often. But at night, they
write to each other. One day, Tina is tired of this situation, she
would like to see Antonio again…
A beautiful love story illustrated by Albertine and told with the
right words of Sylvie Neeman.

Sold to Spain, Netherlands
and England
A mother slowly turns round with her baby in her arms,
her chid, her little one, who grows up imperceptibly
while she whispers to him sweet words, telling him their
story. The child grows to a man and it’s the mother who
begins to shorten more and more…
A book about motherhood, about love, that can be read
as a flipbook. A round, a farandole, telling with poetry
the circle of life. For this book, Albertine uses only a grey
pencil. Germano Zullo’s simple words, allied to the pure
drawings of Albertine, bring even more intensity and
emotion to the strory.
En ville

16p., 14.70 €
Sold to Netherlands
The dresses has generous dimensions and colors. One
page opens on an extravagant and huge dress and on
the other page, the author offer us a life moment in
a short text. In a few lines, he wrote the Morgane’s
portrait, postman’s daughter who likes playing alone,
Marc-Henry, the morbidly shy boy, or Mélina who
collects everythings that is disgusting… Intimist
moments in a whimsical mirror effect that Albertine
brings to light.
This book will be part of an Albertine’s exhibition in
L’Art à la page in Paris in november 2014.
Bimbi
Albertine
20,5 x 29,5 cm, 112p., 24.80 €
Childhood might seem like an enchanted interlude for some people.
First of all it is the time of insouciance, this very rare and ephemeral
state of being. Bimbi delves into the footbridges that link up our
different states of mind; from freedom to pressure, from joy to
sadness; from imagination to reality; from insouciance to torment.
This book looks at the matter that shapes one’s personality or that
even builds a society. To take time to observe feelings and emotions
where there are the liveliest (during childhood) might enable the
reader to reinterpret the world by speculating on the meaning of
life. What do we do with these first feelings? What do we keep from
these small splinters of insouciance? Albertine’s illustrations are the
opportunity to understand what makes us come alive and what brings
us together.

Juste à côté de moi
Just beside me
Sigrid Baffert
Julien Billaudeau
5+, 16 x 29 cm, 32p., 13.90 €
Victor and Igor are friends, they live in the same town, they are in the same
class, they love the same girl, they have the same problems: they both have
troubles getting up on the morning, none of them is fond of the canteen
food, they both are very bad at dictation and bored on evenings while
waiting for their parents to come home.
And yet Victor and Igor are very different. Victor eats his fill, his father is an
advertisement designer, he has a baby sitter who takes care of him on the
evening until his parents come home, and a nice bedroom all for himself.
Igor is always hungry, his parents leave early and come home very late
because of their jobs, he has to take care by himself of his young brothers
after school and his apartment has only one room.
Only the subtle and delicate style of Sigrid Baffert could explain to the
children the social differences, our two-tier society, the everyday of
the poorest.
The graphic style, spirited and colourful of Julien Billaudeau brings good
mood and vitality to this album, of which the theme is grave and so actual.
Ingénieuse Eugénie
Ingenious Eugenia
Anne Wilsdorf
4+, 17 x 24 cm, 44p., 13.90 €
Sold to Italy
Eugenia and her little brother Nestor live on the Forgotten Island. One day,
they glimpse far away in the mist the island of Nowhere. They are quickly
explained they must have had visions: this island is nothing but a myth, an
unreachable ground. That’s all it takes to convince Eugenia to reach it at
all costs. With her gift for inventions and the unexpected help from a few
inhabitants of the island, beavers and fireflies, Eugenia manages to cast
bridges between her island and the one she dreams about, where she is
welcome by nice autochthons. A book as a plea for science, reminding us
that it is within reach of everybody, including girls!

Adrienne Barman
all ages, 18.5 x 25.5 cm, 216p., 24.90 €
Sold to Poland, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, English
worldwide, China (simple chinese), Russia, Brasil and Taiwan
The snow white, the hunters, the disappeared, the noisy,
the gigantic, the nervous, the endangered… What a very
personal way to classify animals. Adrienne’s work is as much
a scientific research than a titanic process of colouring. Proof
of this is that the illustrator looked at the case of her 216
pages encyclopaedia for a year-long. Patchwork of tints or
gradations, she stages with humour, and in her own way, many
and varied animals in their natural environment: from the
leopard lounging on a branch to the smiling hippopotamus on
the bottom of the water or the worried owl into the dark night.
A beautiful piece of work that reminds one of the
encyclopaedias of yesteryear, but in a much more funny way…

Mish-mash animals
Constanze v. Kitzing

Sold to Spanish worlwide
An elephant in a hot pink tutu, a rhinoceros in green and white stripped
pyjamas, a sheep knitting a sock, a fox in uniform, a penguin carrying his
baby on the back… And why not mix them all? The horned tail of the goat
with the chubby body of the pig and the skinny legs of the zebra, to create
animals even funnier! Full-face… or from behind, it’s even better!
A mish-mash book, funny and charming, which will ravish the little ones.

the foolish things he used to do but also the way

that might change the world,
especially the Informatics and New Technologies filled. Their
children, the twins Mila and Ilam, and the young Liam are
always together. But during a summer, while Achille gage Liam
to his friend Yak, this one tries, without Achille’s consent, an
experiment on the three children and implants a chip in the
back of their skulls. But the experience turns bad few days
later: one of the children is found dead.
Some criminals interested by this experience chase the
researchers and kidnap Yak and her daughter. Achille and
Liam are the only one who can help them… but it will come
with a price.
A breathless thriller, rich in twist, which puts the stress on
science and ethics.
Le caméléon et les fourmis
blanches
The Chameleon and the white ants
Emmanuel Bourdier
15+, 14 x 21 cm, 144p., 13.90 €
Casimir, a teacher hammered
by life, eyes fixed on the
rearview mirror, sees his
life as a dead end and is
slowly recovering from a
break-up. In his class, a young
illegal immigrant from Mali
exasperates him more than any other pupils. Devouring
books, thirsting for the future, he lies, skips school and
pretends to be more ignorant than he is. But when Issa’s
father, threatened with deportation, entrust Casimir with
Issa’s care, they will have no other choice than to learn
how to live together.
At last, Casimir will find a way to redemption and Issa the
opportunity for a new start.
Two voices, two views of the world, a world in which the
word fraternity slowly takes dust.
