Description

Cléo lives by the water with her parents. Her dream: sailing around the world. Her father gives her a white sheet, and her mom uses her silver scissors to sew her a main sail. On to the oceans, the wind and the mist!

But Cléo grows up and soon, her main sail has become too small for her adventures.

A story filled with nostalgia and tenderness, great joys and little pains, where the readers find themselves starboard-side, sailing on the ocean of imagination; but also portside, along the thin thread of life's transformation.

And now, she is publishing! Happy sailing, Jeanne!
