The Blue-Handed Shepherd
By Pierre-Luc Granjon - Samuel Ribeyron
Songs by AMÉLIE LES CRAYONS
Madalen, the shepherd, lives with her two children on a lost island in the middle of the ocean. Life goes peacefully by; but there is a shadow in the painting. Each year, Kelen, the father, takes to sea, unable to ignore the call of the ocean.
One day, Gael, the son, catches a fabulous silver fish. So beautiful that it's difficult to resist, so cold that it corrupts the heart...
An unusual tale, a veritable ode to traveling, freedom and love. A timeless story to charm all ages, magnificently illustrated by a talented artist.
Pierre-Luc Granjon (text)
Principally a maker of animated films, including The Four Seasons of Léon, The White Wolf, A Little Escape, and scriptwriter (Snow, Zibilla), Pierre-Luc sometimes takes a step aside and becomes illustrator or author of books for children (The Return of Super-Beige, The Child Without a Mouth).
