The girl, dem papagei, le loup

My first book in Eglish, French and German
The book will be published on February 5th by Walker, Albin Michel (France) and Aladin (Germany), and a year later by Candlewick (USA).

The German “Enten, Hula Hoop” box necessitated this drawing for twitter:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And a most excellent response too.
