    “Handling the art of details and stimulating our imagination with a tremendous flexibility and a great subtlety, Marianna Coppo delivers an ode to simplicity and inventiveness.”
    Marie Fradette, Le Devoir


    “It’s beautiful, smart and well done. The story relies on the sense of observation of young readers. It guarantees a true reading pleasure.”
    Pierre-Alexandre Bonin, Les bouquins d’abord


    “While a whole world full of imagination comes alive on the left, the characters wait and become impatient on the right. And suddenly the two worlds come together. This fun picture book invites us to be inventive, even, and especially, while we are waiting!”

    Marie-Hélène Vaugeois, Les libraires
