Charlotte and the migration of the shorts

Written by Smagghe Laurène
Illustrated by Alphen Jean-Claude

Charlotte loves shorts. Morning, afternoon, evening… she wears them. However, in November… No more shorts. Disappeared! What will Charlotte do now? How will she live without her shorts she so adores?

Ah, our dear habits. How difficult it is to change!

We love Laurène Smagghe’s beautiful writing blended with Jean-Claude Alphen’s drawings so much!

The Author:

Laurène Smagghe is editor-in-chief of the magazine Les Débrouillards. She is passionate about science, writing… and reading, of course! The Migration of the Shorts is her first book.

The Illustrator:

Jean-Claude Alphen was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1965. He spent his childhood in France, his father’s native country, before returning to live in Brazil, his mother’s native country. Trained at the ESPM of São Paulo (Advanced School of Communication and Marketing), he obtained his initial experience as an illustrator in the press, as a cartoonist.

His career in youth literature began in the 1990s, first as an illustrator, then as an author/illustrator. Having authored thirty books, Jean-Claude has also published over one hundred picture books as an illustrator. Winner several times of the most prestigous awards for youth literature in Brazil, his book SUPER was selected in 2018 by THE WHITE RAVENS. With D’eux, he has published Adélie, Charlotte and the Migration of the Shorts and A Cat’s Life.
