Hippolyte is an only child: no brother, no sister. His mother calls him her "prince", her "masterpiece, her perfect little chap"… But, he has to take out the rubbish, to lay the table, to wipe and put away the dishes…

One day, after going to look for crackers at Mister Baratini’s corner shop, Hippolyte comes back home with a brother… in a jar!

Aristide, the new favorite son, is born…

'Aurélie Guillerey’s illustrations have a delicately vintage charm and a fizzy creativity.'

– Un Tiroir à Histoires 

'This dynamic story is beautifully accompanied by Italian twist music, as well as very realistic sound effects.'
– En Vue

'A story full of dialogues, balancing between reality and imaginary. Aurélie Guillerey’s malicious images properly reflect the fantasy of this story upon complex relationships between siblings.'
