Azalea: The Encounter (vol.1)

  • The adventures of the small and daring Azalea, in her world of plants, flowers, insects and animals.   


    Azalea is as tall as a pine cone. She lives in a tree hollow with her grandfather (as tall as one-and-a-half pine cones), a wise and erudite man, and Léonard, a pretty little blue spider. They're alone on a beautiful island, surrounded by animals and flowers.  


    While her grandfather tries to pass on his knowledge of nature, the little girl can’t stand still. She has just one idea in mind: to play outside and find the beetle she's seen wandering! Finally, Grandpa gives in to her. 


    As she explores the island, she makes an unexpected encounter... Could the island be inhabited by other people?
