Le Refuge - Géraldine Alibeu - 22 x 29 cm - 32 pages - September 2017 - € 14

We follow a resourceful little boy: he is astute and enthusiastic, and does not hesitate to ask each person he meets something, an object, a piece of advice. As a result, a shelter is built; a refuge as well as a mirror of the diversity of individuals who helped him to construct it.
A soft, colourful and generous picture book, a beautiful thought on welcoming and altruism.
Géraldine Alibeu, highly interested in the cruelly relevant issue of refugees, refers to this subject with subtlety and tenderness.

Géraldine Alibeu joined Claude Lapointe’s illustration workshop at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs (decorative arts school) in Strasbourg, from which she graduated in 2001. She has worked as an illustrator for children’s books and the press ever since and writes her own picture books. She also has some experience in film animation and has been working for the past few years on a project using ceramics and textile art.
