    "Welcome to an enchanting world: ours! Girls and boys of all ages, take a walk! Love it! And you will be satisfied." - Hélène Courtois, astrophysicist, and cosmographer


    "An original album, both fun and educational, halfway between comics and a documentary. The perilous exercise of science popularization is perfectly successful!" - Romain Galissot, Bodoï


    "All subjects are approached in a direct and simple manner, with the right dose of humor. Children will learn a lot of things." - Benjamin Roure, Télérama


    "Without being off-putting or too pedagogical, Gaëlle Alméras's story is exciting. By having her story embodied by three animal friends, her words are very accessible for the little ones. An excellent reading moment, and it's smart!" - Damien Canteau, Comixtrip
