A ba ba, By Malika Doray and Annelore Parot
Do you know your a ba ba? It is a coded language, used for exchanges, both minimalistic and meaningful. The kinds of exchange used by adults and children as a common frame of communication. Both for fun and for real, you turn the pages and you move from the a ba ba shared in an adult’s arms to the a ba ba proclaimed independently. You will meet up again with some familiar characters from Malika’s pantheon, all of whom speak the ababa language. So, aba, abbaba, aba aba? Which one will you choose? For this book, Malika has tried out a new tool: large felt pens with beautiful colours both transparent and intense.
