Comme des géants (Canada)

The Story of Herman

  • An enigmatic picture book that — with its surreal tale and detailed black-and-white illustrations that seem out of another time— breaks the codes of classical children’s literature.


    While playing on the beach, Herman the Lizard and Max the Raven discover a wreck washed ashore and strange food cans. The gluttonous Herman eats all the cans’ contents. All of a sudden, he feels bad…


    In this fantastic tale, a huge surprise is waiting for Max and the other animals livingin the forest. But Max will neither lose confidence nor his temper while trying to help his friend.
