The funny creature from Guide de survie dans la ville takes on a new guide, this time in the city. With her book under her arm, she wanders the streets to meet its inhabitants, both human and animal. As she wanders and asks questions, she finds in her precious guide all the solutions she needs to apprehend this new universe! Those flat tires? dumbbells! And why not a mop as a wig?
How to protect herself from the bright red sun that is bothering her? Gathering seeds, acorns and dandelions, she shows a flawless ingenuity by planting them in her new hair, letting the rain and the sun make them grow. Under a thick shade, she invites her new friend, a big white dog, to bask with her, under the incredulous gaze of the inhabitants and passers-by.
In the same spirit as her first book, intelligent, curious and clever—winner of an award at the prestigious Bologna Fair—the Chinese author Hao Shuo delivers here colorful and funny drawings, full of surprises and poetry.
