The little school of the imagination

by Alain Serres
This boxed set features 15 large-format illustrations and 30 tokens that serve as visual prompts to stimulate children’s imagination: children choose an image, take a token and then invent their own story! A mobile phone disturbs the hustle and bustle of a port, for example, where they are loading a baby elephant onto a cargo ship: What’s the story? What happens next? What adventures might occur? Can you invent a story that no one has ever written before? And if you can’t think of what happens next, you just take another token, and the story begins again.

The wolf that was always hungry

by Eric Battut
This wolf really has a voracious appetite. He devours everything, everywhere, all the time: wild boars, mountains, forests... And inevitably he gets fatter with every meal! Why not go on a diet? He hates the idea. What about medical help? He swallowed the doctor before he could even utter a word. Who can quell his incredible hunger pangs?

Little by little

by Emilie Vast
Little by little, starting from the smallest, the animals march two by two onto the deck of the ship while the water rises gradually. The story is well known. Emilie Vast tells it to us once again with her animals that speak of the carelessness of men during the rise of the waters. A modern fable about climate change.
