A hymn to the world of childhood and the freedom to be oneself!

Who hasn’t heard a parent say: Go play with the little boy! (or the little girl...). Our hero, quietly busy playing in his own world, in the public garden, rebels: “And I ask you to go and play with the lady who feeds the pigeons, there, on the bench? What if this little boy was in fact a monster in disguise? What if he’s luring me into his underground kingdom, where other child slaves are at his service?” This is the beginning of a zany adventure where the child (and the lively Clémentine Beauvais) imagine a secret world à la Roald Dahl and a rescue operation full of surprises!
