Have you met Bidule? (It's BE-DOO-L, like Be Cool with a D.)
Bidule is not pretty. He would like to play with other kids, but he can't because he is a MONSTER. So he is sad. And when Bidule is sad, he gets hungry, and when he is hungry well... he eats.
Until one lonely day, when Bidule gets the idea to eat COLORS...
Me, I Am Bidule, is a tenderhearted tale about friendship and difference. A funny and touching adventure, illustrated with minimalistic and poetic drawings. Welcome to Bidule's monstrously funny and colorful world!
About the book:
Bidule was born under Anaïs' pencil as a tribute to those who feel a bit different. Inspired by her little boys and the sorrow the news would fill her heart with, Anne-Gaëlle joined her to tell the story of this adorable monster.
Bidule aims at inspiring children so as to make them actors of a better tomorrow, inviting them to welcome the people from everywhere, and to be curious about the differences that life might bring to their door.
Anaïs & Anne-Gaëlle sincerely thank all the moms who joined the Bidule adventure, translating this story in tens of languages (french, spanish, italian, hungarian, german, hebrew, arabic, yiddish, and SO much more!) and thus giving this monster a chance to pursue his mission all over the world.
