If My Dad Was Still There...
A little boy who lost his dad builds the links of souvenir on an
invented and perfect day. He is happy to do with Dad what
they used to love: telling secrets and tender words, teasing
each other, talking about Mum, about his friends... in other
words, spending a special day with Dad.
Poetical, sensitive and funny, a comfort for children who
experience the loss of a close relative. Much more than a book
about mourning, it is all about love and faith in the future.

We live in a world that displays an infinite number of colours, both
in Nature and in our human civilization. Through a large spectrum,
this is a brilliant portrait of 120 shades.
Conceived as a rainbow, from whites to pitch-black, it offers a
poetic approach to colours and a chromatic approach to objects.
Questionning our sensitivity and our knowledge, it invites us to look
at our environment in a new way, through the prism of colours.
A solid block of colour on the right page is illustrated on the left
page by a vegetal, animal, mineral, human or everyday life item.
The colour is identified thanks to the object it is named after. We
all know the cardinal red, the carmine red or safran red. But do you
know why flamingoes are pink or the moon is white ? If you don't,
the short and smart texts will tell you the story!

Les antennes du criquet sont plus
courtes que son corps alors que
chez la sauterelle, les antennes
sont plus longues que le corps
de l’insecte.
Si le criquet se nourrit d’herbes
et de plantes, la sauterelle mange
de tout, notamment des mouches
et des papillons.
En France, la sauterelle que l’on
rencontre est généralement verte
et le criquet marron. Mais il existe
aussi des sauterelles de couleur
marron et des criquets verts !
Le bruit émis par ces insectes,
la stridulation, est produit par
le frottement des élytres (ailes
antérieures) chez la sauterelle,
alors que le criquet frotte ses
fémurs postérieurs pour chanter.
Chez la sauterelle, le tympan est
situé sur le tibia de la première
patte. L’organe auditif du criquet
est placé sur l’abdomen.
On reconnaît la sauterelle femelle
à sa tarière, un organe qui lui
permet de pondre et d’enfouir
ses œufs. Pas de tarière chez la
femelle criquet qui se différencie
du mâle par sa grande taille.
An identity sheet defines the key elements of each
item of the pair. Captions and zooms develop some
anatomical, original or semantic distinctions.
An enticing book to enrich our vocabulary and to
look at the world more wisely and accurately.
La pluie tombe dru et le vent souffle violemment. Un tourbillon naît dans

Si une tornade peut se former sur

En Amérique tropicale, un cyclone
est appelé ouragan (1) . On
utilise le mot typhon (2) quand le
phénomène gagne le nord-ouest
du Pacifique. Dans l’hémisphère
sud c’est un cyclone (3).
Dans l’hémisphère Nord, le sens
de rotation du cyclone est inverse
à celui des aiguilles d’une montre.
Dans l’hémisphère Sud, il suit le
sens des aiguilles d’une montre.
Le centre du cyclone apparaît
en noir sur les images satellite
car il est dépourvu de nuage.
Il s’agit de l’œil du cyclone et
représente son unique zone
« calme ».
Chaque cyclone tropical porte un
nom qui lui est propre. Le premier
de l’année commence par un A,
le suivant par B, etc. Le nom
attribué est alternativement
féminin et masculin.

Les premières glaces étaient sans
doute des sorbets, très appréciés
dans l’Antiquité. Servies à la cour
d’Alexandre le Grand, au ive siècle
av. J.-C., elles étaient composées
de fruits et de miel, le tout placé
dans un récipient entouré de neige
pour glacer le mélange.
La glacière est une sorte de
caisson refroidi pour garder des
aliments au frais. La sorbetière
est l’appareil qui permet de faire
prendre les sorbets et les crèmes
On les déguste souvent au dessert,
mais il existe aussi des sorbets
« salés ». Au basilic, au yahourt
– pimientos ou avocat – voire
à l’huile d’olive, il y en a pour tous
les goûts.
En moyenne, les Français
consomment 6 l de glaces et
sorbets chaque année, loin derrière
les Norvégiens et leurs 13 l de
glace par an et par personne.
Le vacherin, la profiterole et
la pêche Melba sont des desserts
glacés. Cette dernière a été créée
en 1894 par le cuisinier français
Auguste Escoffier, en hommage
à la cantatrice d’opéra australienne
Nelly Melba.
Parfois, manger une glace peut
induire une douleur aux dents.

Who was Picasso? From his birth in Malaga, Spain,
in 1881, to his death in Mougins, a Provencal
village in 1973, Pablo's life looks a bit like
Béatrice Fontanel tells his Odyssey to the young
readers. From the dilapidated workshop where
the young Spanish was painting with an empty
stomach, to the world-famous artist, there was
many steps in his life and extravagant pirouettes
in his art.
But Picasso was not only a painter, he also was
a sculptor, an engraver, a poet, a poet's friend,
a designer of decors and of ballet costumes, a
ceramic artist, a perpetual inventor and a hard
worker. He touched every creation materials
with his golden fingers. Most of the time, he was
surrounded by dogs, cats, monkeys or goats.
This book gives us an overview of each of his
sparkling faces.

Pendant toute la dictature du général Franco, Guernica
a été conservée à New York. Après sa mort et lorsque
l’Espagne est devenue un pays démocratique, Guernica,
à la demande de Picasso, a été transférée à Madrid,
au musée de la Reine Sofia.

Dans un coin de l’atelier, une femme prend des photos des étapes
du travail. C’est Dora Maar, artiste et nouvelle amie de Picasso.
Ces clichés aideront le peintre à engendrer l’une de ses toiles
les plus connues au monde.
Lorsque la France a été occupée par les Allemands,
lors de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, des officiers nazis
s’invitaient chez Picasso. Voyant sur une table une photo
de Guernica, l’un d’eux demanda : « C’est vous qui avez
fait cela ? » Picasso répond : « Non… vous. »

La toile est si grande, (3,50 m de haut sur 8 m de large)

n’arrivait à peindre en haut qu’avec un très long pinceau,
monté sur une échelle.

settled on the numerous Arks now floating around the Earth,
each under the leadership of an immortal Family Spirit.
A deceptively fragile and moving heroine, trapped by a host of
complex characters, reveals her strong personality.
An indisputable page-turner, carried by a subtle sens of
psychology and wonder and an elegant fluent style. A wealth
of twist-and-turns, multiple developments and narrative
details, by a new talented voice.
Ophélie lives on the peaceful Ark of Anima. Behind her affectionate old animated
scarf, her myopic glasses and her clusy hands, she hides two singular talents:
she is a Reader, able to see the past of objects just by touching them. Her second
talent: she is able to move from one place to another by walking through mirrors.
One day, the Deans of Anima, the women in charge of governing the Ark on behalf
of Artemis, the Family Spirit, decide to marry her to Thorn, an unknown and hostile
man from the powerful Clan of the Dragons on the Ark of the Pole. The wedding is
to take place one year later, but in-between, Ophélie has to follow her fiancé to
the Citacielle, the capital city of the Ark of the Pole, the Family Spirit of which is
Lord Farouk, the brother of Artemis.

adding the Reader talent of Ophélie to the Chronicler memory of
Thorn, thus enabling him to translate the Book of Lord Farouk nobody
