This Is How We Live In The World

C’est ainsi que nous habitons le monde, by Alain Serres and illustrated by Nathalie Novi

A budding botanist shares his discovery with us: an animal, a human and a plant – this is the beating heart of the world! The young François observes and draws . . . he has even learned to talk with nature. But big Victor’s gang yell ‘He’s mad! He’s a wizard!’ François and his two young cousins carry on drawing, even if it means facing violence from Victor, who destroys their prints. François’ special relationship with nature gives him the power to shrink to the size of a mushroom or grow taller than a conifer whenever he chooses . . . eventually commanding respect from his attackers.
