Un petit jeu de piste, by Adèle Jolivard
“This morning, in the fumes of his hot coffee, Mr. Rat wonders.” That’s how the adventure begins…
Mr Rat wants to know his surroundings better. One morning, with his neighbour Mr Lion, he decides to go and meet the other zoo animals. Together they ask each animal to draw their home so that Mr Rat can draw a map of the zoo. At the end of the story, the reader will have a pleasant surprise: the zoo and the animals are on a kid’s playmat. The vast world awaits beyond.
This book is as much about humour, poetry, fantasy and the cleverness to paint a beautiful metaphor of childhood.
