Let yourself be surprised by this traditional tale, told here in its purest version: that of Perrault. Don't trust them, heroes don't always survive the wolf...
The illustration is by Lydie Arickx, painter and sculptor. We enjoy the raw images, with their vivid design and simple colours. Layers enrich the whole, superimposing themselves on the colour images or the text facing them. A slightly nightmarish vision for a tale that is a warning. Moreover, Perrault ends it with a "Moralité".
Who said stories are for children?
