From the award-winning duo of FRÉDÉRIC BRRÉMAUD and FEDERICO BERTOLUCCI!
A loyal Australian hunting dog finds himself alone in the outback when his master is bitten by a poisonous snake. He must venture across the dangerous outback to find his way home alone.
The fifth volume in the lavishly illustrated, award-winning series of wordless wildlife graphic novels, each depicting a day in the life of different wild animals, told through the dramatic lens of Disney-esque storytelling, like a nature documentary in illustration.
In addition to Love: The Mastiff being nominated for the previous category, illustrator FEDERICO BERTOLUCCI is also nominated for his work on both Love: The Mastiff & Brindille!
In Brindille, a frail young girl flees a roaring forest fire in the middle of the night desperately taking refuge in a cave where she quickly loses consciousness. She wakes up in a strange, tiny village populated by fairy-like creatures. Her hosts seem intrigued by the sparkles of light that seem to surround her.
The village chieftain explains that one of their hunters found her passed out in the forest and brought her back here for treatment. He asks who she is, but she remembers nothing except for a wall and flames. The chief is baffled by her tale as there has not been any fire in the forest lately, and yet the young woman does indeed show signs of burns. Somewhat recovered and dressed in woodland clothes made by the villagers, the young lady asks to meet the hunter who found her in the forest. She asks her savior to take her to where he found her, hoping that seeing the place will restore her memory. But Meliss refuses — the rules of the village say that only hunters can enter the forest, and all of the sparkles surrounding the girl would catch the eyes of predators living in these woods…
Artist Frank Pé pays tribute to Little Nemo and the cast of mythical characters created by Windsor McCay in 1905. The celebrated artist plunges into their universe with delight, inviting readers to stroll through his own poetic and whimsical imagination. A century later, he breathes new life into this wonderful world.
A masterful reinterpretation in the style of a dreamlike journey that sings an ode to nature and childhood.
A fairy tale from Agnes Domergue and Helene Canac, that is sure to warm the heart and fill you with wonder.
What secret is hidden in the heart of the forest? Lila lives with her father on a snowy island. From a young age, he has protected her from a curse and a demon. One day when he is away for a longer period of time, Lila imagines him already a prisoner and decides to go looking for him. She then discovers a forest asleep under the snow, populated by enigmatic spirits and a white wolf.
