We live in a world that displays an infinite number of colours, both in Nature and in our human civilization. Through a large spectrum, this is a brilliant portrait of 120 shades. Conceived as a rainbow, from whites to pitch-black, it offers a poetic approach to colours and a chromatic approach to objects. Questionning our sensitivity and our knowledge, it invites us to look at our environment in a new way, through the prism of colours. A solid block of colour on the right page is illustrated on the left page by a vegetal, animal, mineral, human or everyday life item. The colour is identified thanks to the object it is named after. We all know the cardinal red, the carmine red or safran red. But do you know why flamingoes are pink or the moon is white ? If you don't, the short and smart texts will tell you the story!

Il fait chaud. Dans le jardin, les abeilles et les papillons butinent de fleur en fleur tandis que les oiseaux gazouillent et que la fourmi s’efforce de transporter une graine vers la fourmilière. Tout est calme quand, soudain, un insecte sauteur et énergique jaillit de l’herbe verte.

Look out! A wasp! No, that's a bee! Nice parka! No, that's an anorak! Which is in the North: Arctic or Antartic?


Through 60 duos of items we usually mix up, divided in 6 chapters (animals, food, nature, clothes, health and everyday items), this smart book is full of fascinating details, all at once geographical, physical, historical, statistical, biological and so on. Les antennes du criquet sont plus courtes que son corps alors que chez la sauterelle, les antennes sont plus longues que le corps de l’insecte.

Si le criquet se nourrit d’herbes et de plantes, la sauterelle mange de tout, notamment des mouches et des papillons.

En France, la sauterelle que l’on rencontre est généralement verte et le criquet marron. Mais il existe aussi des sauterelles de couleur marron et des criquets verts !


Le bruit émis par ces insectes, la stridulation, est produit par le frottement des élytres (ailes antérieures) chez la sauterelle, alors que le criquet frotte ses fémurs postérieurs pour chanter.

Chez la sauterelle, le tympan est situé sur le tibia de la première patte. L’organe auditif du criquet est placé sur l’abdomen.

On reconnaît la sauterelle femelle à sa tarière, un organe qui lui permet de pondre et d’enfouir ses œufs. Pas de tarière chez la femelle criquet qui se différencie du mâle par sa grande taille.

An identity sheet defines the key elements of each item of the pair. Captions and zooms develop some anatomical, original or semantic distinctions.


An enticing book to enrich our vocabulary and to look at the world more wisely and accurately.



La pluie tombe dru et le vent souffle violemment. Un tourbillon naît dans l’atmosphère, grossit et devient fou. Il emporte tout sur son passage : des branches, des arbres entiers et même des maisons. Quand une tornade ou un cyclone sévit, tous aux abris ! On se réfugie alors dans la partie la plus solide d’un bâtiment, loin des fenêtres.

TORNADE NATURE • phénomène orageux SOURCE • cumulo-nimbus DIMENSIONS • 100 m de diamètre FORMATION • extension du haut vers le bas MOUVEMENT • spiralaire VITESSE DE DÉPLACEMENT • quelques dizaines de kilomètres par heure VITESSE DES VENTS • jusqu’à plus de 400 km/h DURÉE • quelques minutes


Le tourbillon de la tornade peut mesurer quelques centaines de mètres de diamètre. Pour le cyclone tropical, il se compte en kilomètres.

Si une tornade peut se former sur terre et sur mer (il s’agit alors d’une trombe marine), un cyclone a besoin d’une mer à 26° C minimum sur 60 m de profondeur. C’est pour cela qu’ils n’existent que sous les tropiques.

CYCLONE • perturbation atmosphérique • océan • 300 à 1 000 km de diamètre • aspiration du bas vers le haut • spiralaire • 20 à 25 km/h d’est en ouest

ice cream

• 118 à 250 km/h en moyenne • de quelques heures à quelques jours


En Amérique tropicale, un cyclone est appelé ouragan (1) . On utilise le mot typhon (2) quand le phénomène gagne le nord-ouest du Pacifique. Dans l’hémisphère sud c’est un cyclone (3).

Dans l’hémisphère Nord, le sens de rotation du cyclone est inverse à celui des aiguilles d’une montre. Dans l’hémisphère Sud, il suit le sens des aiguilles d’une montre.

Le centre du cyclone apparaît en noir sur les images satellite car il est dépourvu de nuage. Il s’agit de l’œil du cyclone et représente son unique zone « calme ».

Chaque cyclone tropical porte un nom qui lui est propre. Le premier de l’année commence par un A, le suivant par B, etc. Le nom attribué est alternativement féminin et masculin.

C’est froid et c’est bon quand il fait chaud. À la fraise ou à la vanille, en pot ou en cornet, à l’eau ou à l’italienne, une ou deux boules… trois pour les gourmands, les glaces font partie de nos desserts préférés. Mais que l’on choisisse un sorbet ou une glace à la framboise, déguste-t-on la même chose ?




GLACE • crème glacée • produit laitier

• Orient (Chine) • eau, fruits et sirop de sucre (parfois du jaune d’œuf) • – 18 °C • peu calorique • 67 kcal (2 boules fraise)

• lait, crème et sucre • – 18 °C • calcium • 113 kcal (2 boules chocolat)





Les premières glaces étaient sans doute des sorbets, très appréciés dans l’Antiquité. Servies à la cour d’Alexandre le Grand, au ive siècle av. J.-C., elles étaient composées de fruits et de miel, le tout placé dans un récipient entouré de neige pour glacer le mélange.

La glacière est une sorte de caisson refroidi pour garder des aliments au frais. La sorbetière est l’appareil qui permet de faire prendre les sorbets et les crèmes glacées.

On les déguste souvent au dessert, mais il existe aussi des sorbets « salés ». Au basilic, au yahourt – pimientos ou avocat – voire à l’huile d’olive, il y en a pour tous les goûts.

En moyenne, les Français consomment 6 l de glaces et sorbets chaque année, loin derrière les Norvégiens et leurs 13 l de glace par an et par personne.

Le vacherin, la profiterole et la pêche Melba sont des desserts glacés. Cette dernière a été créée en 1894 par le cuisinier français Auguste Escoffier, en hommage à la cantatrice d’opéra australienne Nelly Melba.

Parfois, manger une glace peut induire une douleur aux dents. Une hypersensibilité qui mérite de choisir une brosse à dents souple et d’éliminer les aliments acides, avant d’aller voir le dentiste !

Who was Picasso? From his birth in Malaga, Spain, in 1881, to his death in Mougins, a Provencal village in 1973, Pablo's life looks a bit like Ulysses'. Béatrice Fontanel tells his Odyssey to the young readers. From the dilapidated workshop where the young Spanish was painting with an empty stomach, to the world-famous artist, there was many steps in his life and extravagant pirouettes in his art. But Picasso was not only a painter, he also was a sculptor, an engraver, a poet, a poet's friend, a designer of decors and of ballet costumes, a ceramic artist, a perpetual inventor and a hard worker. He touched every creation materials with his golden fingers. Most of the time, he was surrounded by dogs, cats, monkeys or goats. This book gives us an overview of each of his sparkling faces.

The Small Museum: to create one's own exhibition with the removable stickers

Pendant toute la dictature du général Franco, Guernica a été conservée à New York. Après sa mort et lorsque l’Espagne est devenue un pays démocratique, Guernica, à la demande de Picasso, a été transférée à Madrid, au musée de la Reine Sofia.

Picasso peignant Guernica dans l’atelier des Grands-Augustins, 1937 Dans un coin de l’atelier, une femme prend des photos des étapes du travail. C’est Dora Maar, artiste et nouvelle amie de Picasso. Ces clichés aideront le peintre à engendrer l’une de ses toiles les plus connues au monde.

Lorsque la France a été occupée par les Allemands, lors de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, des officiers nazis s’invitaient chez Picasso. Voyant sur une table une photo de Guernica, l’un d’eux demanda : « C’est vous qui avez fait cela ? » Picasso répond : « Non… vous. »


Guernica contre la guerre En Espagne, c’est la guerre civile ! Les « Le spectateur doit être républicains se battent contre les natioarraché de sa torpeur, nalistes et le général Franco. Le 26 avril secoué, pris à la gorge, 1937, les avions allemands, alliés de Franco, qu’il prenne conscience bombardent Guernica. La petite ville est détruite. du monde dans lequel Picasso est révolté et décide de composer un tableau. Il commence par une suite de dessins il vit et pour cela, préparatoires qu’il pose au pied de la vaste toile il faut d’abord vierge.

An indisputable page-turner, carried by a subtle sens of psychology and wonder and an elegant fluent style. A wealth of twist-and-turns, multiple developments and narrative details, by a new talented voice.

Her second talent: she is able to move from one place to another by walking through mirrors. One day, the Deans of Anima, the women in charge of governing the Ark on behalf of Artemis, the Family Spirit, decide to marry her to Thorn, an unknown and hostile man from the powerful Clan of the Dragons on the Ark of the Pole. The wedding is to take place one year later, but in-between, Ophélie has to follow her fiancé to the Citacielle, the capital city of the Ark of the Pole, the Family Spirit of which is Lord Farouk, the brother of Artemis.

She also understands she is the center of a cruel plot: on the occasion of her marriage, the Ceremony of the Donation will take place, allowing the exchange of talents between the two spouses, adding the Reader talent of Ophélie to the Chronicler memory of Thorn, thus enabling him to translate the Book of Lord Farouk nobody has ever been able to decipher.
