15 offbeat portraits of little girls, as terribly cruel as they seem wise with their braids and pleated skirts. A caustic rebuff to the cliché!
“Who said little girls are all angels? Curls and rosy cheeks are not always a guarantee of kindness and obedience…” The caustic Mr Tan demonstrates this through fifteen poems of tasty cruelty, humorously illustrated by Caroline Hüe.
Behind the misleading smiles of Ursula, Adélie or Philomène hides a mistreated little brother or a disfigured goldfish. Scenes with fantasized machiavellianism, which will be as many outlets for the terrible children hiding in all of us, girls or boys!
by Mr Tan, the author of the bestselling series Mortelle Adèle (More than 3 million copies sold in France) and illustrated by Caroline Hué.
