LA LEÇON DE PÊCHE (THE FISHING LESSON)
ARTWORK: EMILE BRAVO / WRITER: HEINRICH BÖLL
Format: 26,2 x 19,8 cm • 40 pages • one-shot
In a small harbor, an old fisherman is taking a nap in his old boat while a restless tourist is taking
lots of photos with his new camera. When the two meet, it is time for a lesson on… life.
The tourist is curious about the man’s life and starts to ask him lots of questions. He is astonished
by the fisherman’s idleness: he goes out fishing in the morning, has what he considers a pretty
good catch, and calls it a day. But the tourist has bigger ideas, he tries to explain to the
fisherman how going out to sea again would mean catching more fish, getting more money,
buying a larger boat, catching even more fish, and so on… leading up to a large industrial
empire and he would be rich! “And then?” asks the fisherman. The answer will teach the tourist
the irony of his suggestion.
KEY POINTS
Adapted from the novel of Nobel Prize winner Heinrich Böll. Illustrated by Emile Bravo,
winner of the prestigious Jugendliteraturpreis in 2010 and a Montreuil award in 2008
Il se redresse, engourdi, et lance
au touriste un regard agacé.
Le touriste s’empresse alors
d’engager la conversation :
Le pêcheur
secoue
la tête.
Le pêcheur
hoche la tête.
Le touriste est de plus en plus nerveux.
Le touriste ne
peut plus contenir
la question qui,
pour ainsi dire,
menace de lui
briser le cœur…
Le pêcheur
secoue la tête.

L'HISTOIRE DU LION QUI NE SAVAIT PAS ÉCRIRE
(THE STORY OF THE LION THAT DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO WRITE)
ARTWORK: MARC BOUTAVANT / WRITER: MARTIN BALTSCHEIT
Format: 26,3 x 19,8 cm • 40 pages • one-shot
Lion doesn’t know how to write, but he doesn’t care because he knows how to roar and show his teeth and
for a lion that’s plenty. Or at least until the day when he fell in love with a beautiful lioness who he saw
reading in a tree. He wants to be gallant and tell her how he feels in a letter. And that is when things get
complicated. He decides to ask his friends for help and it doesn’t go exactly as he had hoped….
KEY POINTS
Winner of the Children's Education Award in 2008. 25 000 copies sold in France. Translated into 7 languages
Un jour, le lion rencontra une lionne. Elle lisait un livre et elle était très belle. Le lion s’approcha
pour l’embrasser. Mais il s’arrêta net, et réfléchit. Une lionne qui lit, c’est une dame. Et à une dame,
on écrit des lettres. Avant de l’embrasser. Cela, il l’avait appris d’un missionnaire qu’il avait dévoré.
Mais le lion ne savait pas écrire.
VOTEZ POUR MOI! (VOTE FOR ME)
ARTWORK: MARC BOUTAVANT / WRITER: MARTIN BALTSCHEIT
Format: 26,2 x 19,8 cm • 40 pages • one-shot
Who is going to be the new king of the jungle ? Elections in the animal kingdom for the King of the Jungle,
can be quite amusing and a bit disorganized. Voting amongst animals is, however, much less complicated
than with humans. There is never more than one candidate, and it’s always the same one: The lion. Except
that this year, one of them has decided that enough is enough, little gray mouse has decided to run against
him and is determined to beat the Lion and become Queen of the Animals. The electoral campaign is
tough ... and funny! The mouse’s bid is gathering quite a following, and each group has specific demands...
The ants want more work for everyone, the German Shepherds are asking for more law and order, and
the foxes want the borders (the ones with the hen territory) to come down. When animals mimic human
behavior, it is pretty chaotic! This story, if you consider it closely, is not so far from reality…
Mais la petite souris, elle aussi, demanda à un artiste de lui peindre une affiche.

LES PETITES PERSONNES (LITTLE PEOPLE)
ARTWORK: GWENDAL LE BEC / WRITER: CATHERINE LEBLANC
Format: 26,7 x 32 cm • 32 pages • one-shot
Do little people ever grow big ? Little people have a head, two arms two legs and a school bag. Little people
like to wear disguises, and when they do it’s not so easy to recognize them. Little people never live alone. They
live with big people who take care of them. Everyone was little once, playing, pestering, exploring…and, like it or
not they all grow up. This book is a poetic and funny way to help kids grow up more easily while still listening to
the little kid whispering in their ears. Perhaps it will remind some adults how great it is to be a child!
Les petites personnes ont une tête,
deux bras et deux jambes, et un sac pour l’école.
Les petites personnes veulent explorer la terre entière,
la mer et ses profondeurs, le ciel et ses lumières.
Les petites personnes aiment très fort et pour toute la vie,
même si on leur dit que ce n’est qu’un amour d’enfant.

Car c’est en laissant les autres en paix

QUI DIT NOIR DIT BLANC (IT'S NOT ALL BLACK AND WHITE)
ARTWORK: ANTOINE GUILLOPPÉ / WRITER: MARIO URBANET
Format: 26,7 x 32 cm • 64 pages • one-shot
Because a nice little fable is always better than a moral lesson. « Nothing is Ever Just Black and White. » is what
you’ll take away from this collection of fables by the enchanting storyteller Mario Urbanet illustrated by the
incredibly talented Antoine Guilloppé. Much like Aesop and La Fontaine’s stories these fables will subtly elucidate
certain issues without driving the point home.
KEY POINTS
Antoine Guilloppé's work is recognized worldwide for his unique way of drawing in Black and white
Seul le cormoran, ému par la peur des enfants à l’approche de la nuit, proposa son aide. Les
villageois tentèrent de l’en dissuader car ils savaient que sa disparition attristerait leurs petits, et il était
évident qu’il ne ferait pas le poids devant un si redoutable adversaire. Mais le volatile les rassura :
– Ne vous en faites pas ! Je réussirai, car j’ai mon idée, et elle est infaillible !
Il s’envola sous les encouragements de tous. Après un long vol d’une seule traite, il parvint à
repérer le marigot où le nouveau monarque, entouré de ses fidèles, pérorait. Il se posa devant
lui et débita aussitôt le compliment qu’il avait préparé :
– Je te salue, grand roi de la jungle ! Je m’incline devant ta toute-puissance ! Tu mérites, comme
tout monarque, de posséder un bouffon ! Me voici !
Surpris, mais flatté, le caïman jaugea l’intrus, et lui répondit sur un ton bourru :
– Si tu veux entrer à mon service, montre-moi d’abord ce que tu
sais faire !
Le candidat esquissa un pas de danse et imita tour à tour la voix
de différents animaux :
– Je suis l’ara bleu des forêts !
Au marigot royal je viens m’incliner !
– Coâ ! Coâ ! Coâ ! Ouille ! Ouille ! Pour te servir !
Je suis la grenouille !

LE TABLEAU (THE PAINTING)
ARTWORK: JEAN-FRANÇOIS LAGUIONIE / WRITER: ANIK LE RAY
Format: 30 x 27 cm • 64 pages • one-shot
There is a rumor spreading about this unfinished painting: the painter has abandoned the work. The Alldones, who
consider themselves the only finished part of the painting, take charge. The Partials are chased away, and the Ruffs,
are mercilessly persecuted. Ramo, a young idealistic Alldone, is not happy about what is happening and takes the
side of the oppressed. This is the comic adaptation of the animated film about a tale in a painting.
KEY POINTS
Adapted from the Movie "The Painting" by Jean-François Laguionie
égarés dans la nuit de Venise, les quatre
aventuriers tentaient de trouver un passage vers l’atelier.
Le dôme d’un édifice leur parut familier. Ils entrèrent,
grimpèrent l’escalier jusqu’à la fenêtre ronde de la coupole.
De l’autre côté, un œil les observait sans les voir.
— Qui vous a permis d’entrer dans mon tableau ?
rouspéta l’autoportrait en apercevant Ramo, Lola, Plume
et Magenta en file indienne sur le manche de son pinceau.
Il était encore fâché ! Il ne pouvait faire autrement :
il avait été peint dans une mauvaise période du peintre.
— Si vous portez les peines du peintre, peut-être
possédez-vous aussi ses qualités ? suggéra Lola.
L’autoportrait découvrit alors qu’il savait peindre.
Mieux encore, il avait du talent !
L’ambiance se détendit dans l’atelier. Tout doucement, Plume
ouvrit son sac et en sortit une pelote de traits emmêlés.

LA CASE DE L'ONCLE TOM (UNCLE TOM'S CABIN)
ARTWORK: AUDE SAMAMA / WRITER: JEAN-PIERRE KERLOC'H
Format: 25,5 x 29,8 cm • 48 pages • one-shot
Uncle Tom’s Cabin is the anti-slavery novel that is said to have instigated the civil war and help fuel the abolitionist cause
in the 1800s. It was the second bestselling book after the bible in that century. This masterpiece awakened people’s
consciousness to the treatment and condition of slaves in the 19th century and is still to this day a great vector for
humanism and tolerance. This poignant adaptation is true to the original work and good for readers from 8 up.
Sur le bateau, il y avait une autre personne que tout le monde aimait. Une petite fille
au teint très clair, toujours vêtue de blanc. Elle devait avoir dans les six ans.
Avec ses grands yeux bleus pleins de rêves, on aurait dit un ange. Elle était gentille
avec tous, elle distribuait des friandises et des fruits aux esclaves. Elle s’appelait
Évangéline et voyageait avec son père, M. Augustin Saint-Clare, un homme jeune et
élégant, qui avait toujours le sourire et la plaisanterie ironique aux lèvres.
Il était accompagné de miss Ophélie, sa cousine, une femme entre deux âges, raide
et osseuse, affichant un éternel air pincé.
Souvent, Évangéline descendait rejoindre Tom sur le pont inférieur. Il lui racontait
des histoires, ils s’apprenaient des jeux. Il sculptait pour elle des flûtes, des sifflets,
des personnages dans des morceaux d’écorce ou des noyaux. Elle l’appelait oncle
Tom et l’autorisa à l’appeler Éva. Un jour, elle supplia son père :
– Papa, s’il te plaît, achète-moi l’oncle Tom.
– Pour quoi faire ? Nous avons déjà trop d’esclaves.
– Pour jouer avec lui.
Cette fois, ce fut la tante Ophélie qui répondit :
– Les Noirs sont des sauvages, mais ce sont aussi des êtres humains. Pas des jouets.
Éva, venez plutôt avec moi prendre votre leçon d’écriture et de lecture. Ça vous sera
plus utile que de jouer.
Elle empoigna la petite par la main et l’entraîna vers sa cabine. Les leçons d’écriture,
Éva n’aimait pas beaucoup cela. Tom, lui, aurait aimé apprendre à bien lire et à écrire.
Grâce à Georges Shelby, il avait appris à épeler quelques passages de la Bible.
Pas davantage. Lire et écrire vraiment, ce n’était pas pour les Noirs.

The truth often comes out of the mouths of babies, what if one were President. This way we could have

Every summer Ms Hélène has plenty of guests at her house. It is very important to her that they all feel at home
so she is careful to redecorate each room for each guest. The funny thing is that they never select the room she
has set up especially for them, but are always very happy and feel at home in the room they have chosen. A story
that subtly illustrates that people are not always what they seem.

Conte de Roumanie
L e bâton fatigué
C
et homme-là était riche et tenait à ce que tout le monde le sache. Il s’habillait
comme une figurine de mode et se déplaçait dans une carriole bariolée,
tirée par un beau cheval pommelé.
Ce jour-là il parcourait la contrée dans le seul but de se faire admirer. Tout aux
griseries de la vitesse, l’homme vit sur le chemin un paysan qui ne semblait pas
vouloir s’écarter. Agacé par cet intrus qui allait ralentir son allure, le bellâtre sentit
monter la colère en lui.
L’obstacle n’était autre que Pàcalà le malicieux. À la vue de cet équipage insolite, il
eut l’idée de jouer à ce prétentieux l’un de ses tours favoris. Il se planta au beau milieu
du chemin, s’appuya sur son bâton de marche et resta aussi immobile qu’une statue.
L’homme dut faire stopper son attelage et apostropha cet intrus :
– Ôte-toi de mon chemin, bouseux mal dégrossi ! Que fais-tu planté là comme une
souche ?
– Tu le vois bien, ce que je fais ! Je tiens ce bâton pour qu’il se repose du long
chemin qu’il a parcouru depuis ce matin !
Le riche parvenu n’en crut pas ses oreilles. Ce rustre avait-il l’intention de se moquer
de lui avec son bâton fatigué ? Il allait voir à qui il avait affaire :
– Sors de ma route et vivement ! Avant que mon fouet ne t’y aide !
Joignant le geste à la parole, il fit siffler un long fouet de postillon. Pàcalà, nullement
impressionné et plus que jamais décidé à rire aux dépens de ce hâbleur, répliqua :
12
– Tu n’as donc pas pitié d’un pauvre bâton accablé de fatigue ? Laisse-le souffler
un moment, tu as bien le temps d’arriver là où tu vas !
Se pinçant le nez pour être sûr de ne pas rêver, l’homme tenta de dissiper la brume
Jugeant que l’appât était prêt, Pàcalà fit mine de céder :
– Bon ! Tu as gagné, je vais y aller pour te faire plaisir ! J’ai juste besoin que tu m’aides !
L’opulent voyageur, convaincu de s’être fait obéir grâce à son or, décida d’être
qui commençait à envahir son cerveau. Il changea d’attitude :
– Tu es sans doute un simple d’esprit, a-t-on jamais entendu parler de la fatigue
d’un bâton ? Cela ne se peut pas !
magnanime avec cet amuseur public :
– Accordé, mon brave ! De quoi as-tu besoin ?
L’heure était venue pour Pàcalà de porter l’estocade :
Notre farceur, adoptant un ton sentencieux, répliqua :
– Pour un bâton ordinaire, je te l’accorde ! Cela ne s’est jamais vu ! Mais ce bâtonci est doué de sentiments, tout comme toi et moi. Cela mérite qu’on le respecte !
– Pour qui te prends-tu pour me retarder ainsi ? Sais-tu bien à qui tu as affaire ?
– Tiens seulement le bâton bien droit jusqu’à mon retour ! Pour faire plus vite,
j’emprunte ta carriole ! Quant aux pièces d’or, je te fais confiance, tu me les donneras
seulement quand tu auras bien ri !
La nuit allait tomber, quand un paysan qui rentrait des champs s’esclaffa à la vue
– À ce que je peux constater, tu dois être un colporteur en broderies et colifichets !
Quant à moi, mon nom est Pàcalà, pour te servir !
de cet homme enrubanné tenant un bâton au milieu du chemin.
– Toi aussi tu t’es fait prendre ! Rassure-toi ! Pàcalà en a déjà attrapé bien d’autres
Le malicieux Pàcalà accompagna ces derniers mots d’un large salut théâtral.
– Ne serais-tu pas ce fameux farceur qui passe son temps à faire rire le monde ?
– Oh ! J’ignore ce que l’on dit de moi, mais aujourd’hui je ne suis pas en état de
faire rire, je n’ai pas emporté mon sac à malices.
avec cette farce !
En s’éloignant, le paysan se réjouit intérieurement en pensant que les farceurs,
finalement, quand ils s’en prennent aux puissants, rendent la vie moins triste aux
pauvres gens.
– C’est bien dommage ! J’aime assez à rire !
L’homme se souvint que tout seigneur digne de ce nom se doit
d’entretenir un bouffon. Puisqu’il en avait un sous la main, c’était
le moment d’en profiter. Il sortit une pièce d’or
de son gousset et, la faisant miroiter au soleil, dit :
– Et pour cette jolie pièce d’or, irais-tu le chercher,
ton sac à malices ?
– J’irais volontiers ! Mais je te l’ai dit, mon bâton
est fatigué, je dois le tenir, sinon il va tomber !
Tant qu’il y aura de sottes gens
pour croire aux seules vertus de l’argent,
les farceurs auront de beaux jours
pour régaler le monde de leur humour.
– Écoute ! J’ai envie de rire ! Va chercher ton sac
et j’ajouterai une pièce !

Quelques heures plus tard, je fus réveillé par un cliquetis répété, mêlé à des voix.
Willy et Jupiter étaient déjà en train de trier notre butin. Je suis venu les aider. Nous y
avons passé la journée et une partie de la nuit suivante.
Il y avait des pièces d’or françaises, espagnoles et allemandes, anglaises, et d’autres
d’origine inconnue. Des diamants, des pierres précieuses arrachées à leurs montures
d’or qui semblaient avoir été déformées à coups de marteau.
Méticuleusement, Willy faisait le compte des pièces de valeur les mieux conservées.
Cent dix diamants.
Dix-huit rubis.
Trois cent dix émeraudes.
Vingt et un saphirs.
Une opale.
Deux cents bagues ou boucles d’oreilles.
Trente grosses chaînes en or.
Cinq encensoirs en or.
Un bol à punch en or, orné de danseurs et de feuilles de vignes.
Sans compter une quantité d’autres objets plus ou moins précieux, plus ou moins
abîmés ; notre butin représentait une incroyable fortune.
Willy, toujours méticuleusement, répartit le trésor en trois tas. Cela fait, il s’assit sur
son fauteuil de bois et prit la parole avec calme et dignité. Le roi Salomon rendant
la justice sur son trône ne devait pas avoir l’air plus solennel.
– Moi, William Legrand, à compter de ce jour je vais redevenir un homme riche,
important et donc respecté. Mais je veux partager cette bonne fortune avec vous,
mes amis. Car vous m’avez bien aidé tous les deux.
En plein cœur de la nuit, Smirre le renard se sert d’une plaque de glace dérivant sur
l’eau pour accoster sur la plage où se reposent les oies. Il se saisit de la plus dodue et
l’emporte entre ses crocs. Les hurlements de la malheureuse réveillent Nils qui a juste
le temps de voir un éclair roux se diriger vers le bois. Oubliant sa taille et sa peur, il se
jette à sa poursuite. Il court vite car il possède maintenant la vue perçante des tomtes.
Parvenant à s’accrocher à la queue du voleur, il tire si fort dessus que l’animal, surpris,
en lâche sa proie qui s’échappe aussitôt. Fou de rage, Smirre veut se venger. Mais,
en tentant d’attraper Nils, il ne fait que courir après sa queue ! Soudain, le garçon
grimpe le long d’un tronc d’arbre et se réfugie sur une branche. Là, transi de froid,
il attend patiemment que le jour se lève.
Au petit matin, Smirre est toujours là, bien décidé à ne pas bouger
d’un poil. C’est alors qu’une oie s’approche. Il tente de la saisir quand
une autre le bouscule, bientôt suivie par une troisième. Toute
la journée, les quatorze oies de la troupe d’Akka s’évertuent
à le rendre fou. À la nuit tombée, alors que Nils a depuis
longtemps été mis à l’abri, Smirre s’effondre, épuisé,
dans la boue. Devant ses yeux dansent encore des ailes
et des pattes qu’il ne parvient pas à saisir.
