Rue du Monde

Birds have Wings, Children have Books !
The “little street of the world” founded by Alain Serres has been winding around the world since 1996, with all the freedom of its independence. It celebrates decades of literary and artistic choices driven by its commitment to sharing with children works of beauty and significance, and imbuing them with a critical spirit and above all, a love of freedom. A selection of the best French authors and illustrators’ work into poetry, picture books, documentary and novels for a different vision of our world.
