Description

 

See below for English description.

Un petit cochon contemple la toile vierge posée sur un chevalet devant lui. Il a perdu l’inspiration. Ne sachant pas quoi dessiner, il part à la recherche d’une nouvelle idée. Un voyage fantastique mettant tous ses sens en éveil le conduit dans des contrées fascinantes, à la fois familières et surnaturelles. Lorsqu’il se sent inspiré, il rentre chez lui, prêt à travailler. Ce parcours lui permet de comprendre qu’il n’est pas nécessaire de trop s’éloigner lorsque l’on cherche une idée. Il suffit de regarder autour de soi…

Cet album, rempli d’illustrations magnifiques, pose un regard intéressant sur l’origine de nos idées créatives.

 

When our hero contemplates his empty canvas, he feels his ideas have run out. Not knowing what to draw, he sets off to find inspiration. A fantastic journey winds him through fascinating places, both familiar and surreal, which provide a feast for his senses. When he’s had enough, he heads home, full of inspiration. Will he learn that creative ideas are closer than we think, if we only remember to look around?

This picture book full of stunning illustrations is a thought-provoking look at where ideas come from.

Praise for Mixed Beasts:

 

“In a finished, painterly style, Edwards places his often hilariously imagined subjects in elaborate settings.” — Kirkus Reviews
