UPSIDE DOWN OWL

 

Houbi - Julien Hirsinger, Constance Verluca & Charline Collette - 23 x 21 cm - 44 pages - August 2020 - €14.50

What is that little white dot on a black background? An owl sleeping… Because owls sleep during the day and wake up at night. They are nocturnal animals.

Imagine how different that must be! Instead of saying “Good morning” when they wake up, they say “Good night, did you sleep well?”. Instead of sunglasses, they wear moon-glasses, and most of all, they don’t know about different colours… But that afternoon (I mean, after-midnight), the owl discovers lots of colours at sunrise. A funny text, and a very graphic picture book, illustrated with gouache, exploring strong themes - colours, and day and night.
