Mister Pistachio, Stop! By Julien BAER, ill. by Magali LE HUCHE Julien Baer • Magali Le Huche

By Jean-Baptiste DEL AMO, ill. by Pauline MARTIN

Julien Baer • Magali Le Huche

Gallimard Jeunesse

The perfect picture book to make children understand how close we are to animals.

Parisian pistachio and serial mischief: a jewel of quirky humour!

"Just like you, I love gentleness, cuddles and caresses, knowing that someone protects me. Just like you, I have emotions, I am happy or sad, I don't like to be hurt." Thanks to the subtil composition of the book, full of tenderness, children will readily feel that animals are not so different from us, thus deserving respect and kindness.

A pistachio nut succeeds one day in escaping from a snack bowl and takes a stroll through Paris. Excited by freedom, it causes frightening damages without realizing it: it tears the Eiffel Tower down, it stops the flow of the Seine River... Mister Pistachio, Stop! A zany story and character that will make everybody laugh, since the bigger a mischief, the funnier!

Philippe Lechermeier • Aurélie Guillerey

Gallimard Jeunesse

A medieval tale, that delivers a humanistic and ecological message in a poetic language.

An original retelling of a traditional legend enhanced by fresh and dynamic illustrations.

In a faraway kingdom, a prince lived, who only loved hunting, almost from birth. The king and the queen had called him Savage. One day, whilst hunting down a stag, his leg got caught in a trap he himself had set in autumn. The prince almost fainted out of rage and pain. Was he going to die, deep in the forest? When he opened his eyes again, a strange creature was watching him...

On a winter day, three children are sent out by their parents in the freezing cold to look for food. Lost in the forest, they take refuge in the home of a butcher who takes advantage of their sleep to cut them in pieces and put them in his big salting-tub. It will take the courage of a small bird and the magic of Saint-Nicholas to bring the children back to life.

The Daughters of the Eagle Élise Fontenaille • Quentin Duckit

By Élise FONTENAILLE, ill. by Quentin DUCKIT

978-2-07-508071-2 •


9 moons ago, Dana and her little sister Keena were ripped off from their village and placed in a religious boarding school, as many other native American children. One day they manage to escape the spooky place. Chased by John The Hell and his two watchdogs but protected by the Crow and the Eagle, the God-animals and their tribe, they will suffer many trials before reaching again their family…

Quentin Duckit

Élise Fontenaille

Since 1885 and for a century the Canadian government ripped Haïda children from their family to place them in religious schools, rather resembling jails. Many of them escaped, most of them were taken back and beaten, some of them died from cold and hunger and sometimes a few could regain their home village, just like in this story.

Tetralogy: The Girl Who Walked Through Mirrors By Christelle DABOS 13+ • ChiS, Cz, Eng, Hu, It, Kr, Pol, Por (BR), Ru, Sp (LA), Tur

A post-apocalyptic universe full of wonder and magic, in which people have settled on the numerous Arks now floating around the Earth, each under the power of a Family Spirit. An indisputable crossover page-turner carried by a subtle sense of psychology and an elegant fluent style. An exceptional reception with over 240,000 copies sold in France as of midSeptember 2017 and the rights sold in 11 languages so far. Ophelie, 17, is deceptively fragile and clumsy, but she also is a Mirror-Crosser and a Reader. She peacefully lives on the Ark of Anima. Sent to the Ark of the Pole until the day of a forced marriage with Thorn, its Chief Steward, and obliged to live under the disguise of a servant, Ophelie reveals the strength of her personality and manages to survive the harshness of this freezing ark.



Admitted at the Court of Farouk, the Family Spirit of the Pole, as Thorn's fiancée, Ophelie finds herself involved into investigating the mysterious disappearances of influent personalities of the Court, and understands that Dieu, a mysterious entity, is trying to manipulate them all to take the power. After a dramatic wedding held in the prison of the Citacielle, Thorn mysteriously escapes. Two years and seven months after Thorn's disappearance, Ophelie travels to the Ark of Babel, a cosmopolitan ark and a jewel of modernity. With the permission of Lady Helene, one of the twin Family Spirits of Babel, she becomes a virtuoso apprentice of the Memorial under a false identity, in search of the truth about Dieu and on the trail of Thorn.

New Sparta By Erik L'HOMME

And what if Ancient Sparta was re-born on the shores of Lake Baikal? A captivating alternate history and initiation novel, but also a sensual and passionate love story. The confrontation between two worlds: a decadent, artificial and consumerist West, the Occidie, and New Sparta, a utopian society, based upon the moral and spiritual ideals of Ancient Sparta. An efficient narrative, full of stylistic inventions. The survivors of the Great Upheavals fled two centuries ago to the shores of Lake Baikal to establish the Federation of New Sparta. It is a society based upon the ideals of the ancient Greek city, egalitarism among the citizens, physical and intellectual training, and close to nature. New Sparta lives in peace with the Occidie and the Darislam, two empires, the remnants of the Old World. Until the day two deadly attacks drench the city in blood. Valère, a young pilot of 16, the son of an assassinated New Sparta hero, but also of an Occidian mother, is secretely sent to Occidie. He reluctantly accepts his mission as a spy, leaving behind Alexia, his love since ever. Beyond the fake wonders of Occidie, Valère is going to find unexpected friends and foes, and will finally find out he himself is the key to the whole story. 200 pages • 13+ • October 2017

The Dawn Will Be Glorious

Three Angry Girls

A strong mother/daughter relationship is put into question by the story that Titania, the mother, has to tell her daughter Nine within the time-span of a single and crucial night.

50 years after May 1968, a novel that brings to life, from 1966 to 1968, the wind of protest that led to historical events in Paris, Berlin and Athens and the stories of three young women and of their families.

A tensed and suspenseful narrative, built with subtlety, step by step, that distills the secret story of a family, in its dark and joyful times, as in a thriller: why did Titania hide from Nine from her birth the existence of their family?

A dynamic construction in the form of letters, that brings the reader close to the intimate life of these families, but also to the cultural, social and political context in the three countries.

Love, complicity, transmission between generations, but also struggle for life, with a gallery of strong and endearing characters, and a literary construction based on flashbacks from the past. End of June 2016. At nightfall, a car parks in front of an isolated log, on the shore of a lake. In the car, Nine and her mother. Nine, who will be sixteen in a few days, is furious: she is going to miss the prom party of her high school. Before the sunrise, Titania is going to tell a story to Nine. But not an invented story, as she usually does in the detective stories she publishes: the story of her life, which she never could tell to anyone. Why did she keep so many secrets? Who does this log belong to? And who are the people on the photos on the wall? The reader travels back and forth between nowadays and the 60's and 70's. From the France of Charles de Gaulle until that of the 2015 attacks, he discovers a battered but cohesive family, with a free and fiery mother, RoseAimée, and three resourceful children: Consalata, the elder sister, and Octo and Orion, the twin brothers. Along the pages, it is all about love, politics, loyalty and treachery, successes and failures, breakaways and reunions. 320 pages • 13+ Rights sold in Italy


The book is visually enriched with archive pictures or fictional documents interspersed throughout the pages: photos, newspaper articles, slogans, maps... August 1966. Magda,17 years old, has been hosted for five years by her uncle and aunt in Paris. She is now coming back to West Berlin to join her father. They are hoping for the return of her mother, brother and sister, who are still behind the other side of the Wall. For Suzanne, the departure of her cousin Magda is a heartbreak. She is choking between her parents that barely talk to each other, and dreams only of going out, of rock'n roll and of Marcel, this student who tells her that fidelity is nothing but an obsolete bourgeois concept. In the meanwhile, in Greece, Cleomena, a brilliant student, is worrying herself sick. The Communists are persecuted. Her brother and mother have disappeared. She decides to fly away from the dictatorship and accept the job she has been offered in Paris. approx. 300 pages • 14+ • October 2017
