À la Cour des singes
Through an invented story, illustrated by the animal painter Christophe Huet (eighteenth century), this book invites us to travel.
Travel in time, with these painted decorations where little aristocratic monkeys are dressed like humans.
Travel in space where lovely little Chinese train us in the East and share the taste for exoticism, born during the passage in France of the embassy of the king of Siam in the late seventeenth century.
The authors bring the young reader to discover the castle life and the pleasures of the gardens.
