Prick up your ears. The music that Didier Jeunesse loves so much is in every word, in every picture of our books. We refine texts like goldsmiths refine jewellery : each and every detail is chosen carefully and with love. Our goal is to introduce kids to the pleasure of sharing books out loud with their loved ones, be it laughing at wacky rhymes, singing most famous jazz songs or just listening to a captivating story.
Our books have inspired the imagination of an entire generation of children since the release of our first publication in the “Petits Lascars” series in 1988. Some of these kids have become parents themselves, and some of our books have become a classic of French children’s literature. The catalogue has now over 500 titles, including board books, picture books, interactive audio chip books, books with CDs and young adult fiction. The series such as “A Petits Petons”, “Pirouette”, “Polichinelle” and “Mon marque-page” have a broad fan base, from children to childhood professionals.
Our catalogue showcases a wide variety of writers and illustrators, such as Eric Battut, Ilya Green, Susie Morgenstern, Rébecca Dautremer, Cécile Hudrisier, Carl Norac, Eric Senabre and Pascal Ruter, to name just a few. The artists use painting, carving, collages, and scrap paper to create their innovative and awe-inspiring works.
