The King of the Moon and the Crazy Robot

  • Anathilde and her sister Rose have invited their friends Emile and Philemon round to play. When Anathilde tells them the story of her journey to space with the Moon King, Emile doesn’t believe her. But suddenly, the spaceship on the merry-go-round in the park takes off! And the four friends are launched into the sky on a wonderful journey…


    On the moon, they visit the city of the Moonies and discover their strange habits. There, they meet the toy-stealing Moon King, his huge dinosaur Croquette and, above all, a strange robot…


    The Moon King characters are back for more adventures! Bérengère Cournut and Donatien Mary’s first book was published in 2019 and awarded at the International Bologna Book Fair.
    Donatien Mary’s bright illustrations bring Bérengère Cournut’s writing to life in a new, humourous and joyful adventure.



    Previous title:






    Bérengère Cournut is an acclaimed French writer. Her first books mainly explored dreamlike territories. Since 2011, she regularly collaborates with Donatien Mary to invent universes where text and images dialogue in a facetious and poetic spirit ("Palabres and Schasslamitt", Attila). In 2019 "De pierre et d'os" was published (Le Tripode) awarded by the "Prix du Roman Fnac 2019".


    Donatien Mary is a prolific designer, illustrator and engraver, graduated from the Ecole des Arts décoratifs in Strasbourg in 2007. He develops through his experiments a very unique universe (sometimes filled with dinosaurs, sailors and comets). Each project is built with a different approach, with a certain predilection for all engraving practices: etchings, aquatints, wood engravings, or linos.
