Mon Tout Petit




by Germano Zullo

Illustrated by Albertine

Translated from the French by Katie Kitamura

Winner of the 2016 Bologna Ragazzi Award, Mon Tout Petit is drawn in simple gray pencil, a series of sparse, yet emotionally poignant images. A mother, welcoming her tiny son into the world, tells him the story of their lives, whispering to him as she swings him gently around. With each successive page, he grows while she shrinks, until she is being held by the man he has become. An eloquent portrait of life’s waxing and waning, Mon Tout Petit is a moving celebration of constant, unconditional love, for all ages.
