The period of celebration of the centenary of the First World War is the occasion to address questions that are rarely raised in children’s literature.
Do you remember this man
Arriving one Spring morning
Dressed in a night-blue outfit
And with jet black hair?
Gwenaëlle ABOLIVIER brings us, through beauty and empathy, into the story of the life of a Chinese worker, Wei, whose destiny reflects that of thousands of others who, uprooted and miserable, provided labour force for war efforts. The approach, reinforced by the lively and humanist illustrations of ZAÜ, is completed by a second documentary section that highlights historical facts to the knowledge of young readers, enriched by precise data and a series of old photographs.
