It features seven funny-looking and refreshing giants living in seven wonderful worlds such as the city, the forest, the mountain, the lake, the village, the sea and the prairie. When it is open flat on the floor, toddlers can almost immerse themselves into this giant board book and its colorful landscapes.

Her short films have been screened at numerous international festivals. Her books are published by L'Oie de Cravan and translated by Drawn & Quarterly.
