NOTHING AT ALL
Rien du tout - Julien Billaudeau - €15 - 19 x 26 cm - 42 pages - hard cover - May 2016
“At the beginning, there was nothing. Nothing at all. Of course, yes, there was a couple of trees, but it was almost nothing. Birds perched in trees, a fox, a few rabbits... But nothing more. When Mr C. arrived, he thought that this was not enough. He thought there was nothing at all.” So Mr C. decided to add a street, and then a block of buildings, some groceries shops, a casino and some advertising signs…!
“Nothing” or “everything” is a question of point of view in this clever story. Will Mister C. learn to protect the environment and to love what has been in front of him since the beginning?
