After Flic Flac, Fred Éclair returns with a new story that is soft, intimate and written in the first person on these highlights - walking around after a nap or playing with the cardboard packaging - which punctuate the life of the child.
FRED ECLAIR likes to dawdle, tries to run on Sunday morning, chocolate-desserts-with-nothing-on-top, American novels, undercooked baguettes, screen-printed T-shirts... Zidigli is his second text for children. GWENAELLE TONNELIER collects images. She has plenty of them stuffed in her bag, filled in her notebooks, her boxes, her drawers, her computer. She also creates them. She loves stories and reading them to children. Her job as a librarian has opened doors for her. Zidigli is her first picture book!
