My Great Birthday Gift


Thanks to my dear Sebastiano for giving me this gorgeous oversized volume, 
a modern bestiary with beautiful paintings by Olivier Charpentier
and humorous whimsical texts by Frédéric Kessler!

 The book was originally published in 2007 by Autrement Jeunesse,
while my copy comes from last year's Italian edition by Donzelli.











...my birthday was in fact two months ago, but only now
I have finally managed to take the photos and create this post!
