Couac, by Emilie Vast and Angélique Friant
Once he has broken out of his eggshell, this character, not quite the Ugly Duckling, discovers the world around him and other people’s opinions. Since the ducks reject him, he sets off in search of a more welcoming place. On his way he will have several encounters: an eagle, a penguin, a pelican… until the day he finally discovers who he really is.
This book tells the story of the first steps of existence, wonder, beginner’s clumsiness, then of education and self-confidence and is accessible to early years.
This is an adaptation of the stage show Couac created for the very young by Angélique Friant for the Succursale 101 company. Émilie Vast has brought this graphical universe to life.
