Arthur the chick was uncomfortable inside his egg. He’d grown so much, the room was getting too small for him. Inside his egg, Arthur felt safe, but very squashed. He didn’t fit inside that warm, white-walled room any more, so there was nothing left for him to do but to get out of there. Then he discovered that he lived in a tiny part of a hug and unknown world.

More details

“Arthur” is a board book for pre-readers and early readers, which explores the fragile nature of new-borns: what they feel, what is their first impression of the world they arrive in, their fears and insecurities. It also reflects the tenderness and protective instinct awoken in adult readers by the main character, helpless against everything that surrounds him, as he faces a long learning process. The simple, highly sensitive text is completed with illustrations on a white background, which stand out for their thick, strong lines, intense colours and schematic forms, helping them to be understood and identified by the very youngest readers.
