Le Grand Show Des Petites Choses


Back to my Christmas book list if that's OK with you?
Are you acquainted with Gilbert Legrand's work?
He's a genius. A quick look at this book cover and you just know it's gonna be fun...

.

Le Grand Show des Petites Choses, published by Editions Sarbacane, will introduce you to an amazing line-up of everyday "characters" brought to life by this French illustrator /sculptor's marvellous imagination. If you've been following Kickcan & Conkers for a while you"ll know that this is everything I love - extraordinary from ordinary, new from old (the 3 Rs!),poetry without words. I'll be buying this for my five year old boy Miles but it's definitely going to be a family favourite.

 Enjoy!


Found thanks to the excellent La Soupe de L'Espace
