Another big favorite in this selection, for the sublime album by Emmanuel Bourdier and François Ravard, published by Flammarion Jeunesse.

We really like the poetic and dynamic illustrations that give rhythm to the story. Another element that caught our attention: the font is original and very readable. This peculiarity is due to the fact that this book is suitable for DYS children.
