Catherine Lepage is a graphic designer, author and illustrator. She has written various books for children such as her recent Zoothérapie (2016) and Fines tranches d'angoisse (2014), that were released by Somme toute. In 2016, she adapted and scripted the text of Le tragique destin de Pépito and created the illustrations for this graphic novel based on a tale by the singer-songwriter Pierre Lapointe. Marivière is her second title to be published by Comme des géants.
“This is the perfect book for teaching young children to respect and care for nature. Rather than playing on guilt, Catherine Lepage encourages them to do what they can to protect the environment.“
