Six hommes arpentent le monde à la recherche d'un endroit où travailler et être en paix. Mais quand ils trouvent ce lieu et qu'ils se mettent à y prospérer, ils commencent aussitôt à se méfier de tout le monde et engagent six soldats. Cet album dénonce les dérives de l'argent et du pouvoir, menant jusqu'à la guerre alors que la quête initiale de ces hommes était la paix.

Amazing line drawing illustrations combine with a powerful story of the cyclical futility of war. Recommended for discussion.

This book was originally published in 1972 and has since been translated from French into English. Stylistically it is very different from popular American picturebooks, being rendered in only ink without color. McKee uses lots of geometric shapes and patterns to depict the scenes of war in this book. The topic is heavy and depressing, but the true brilliance of this book is the perfect cyclical story from first and last page.

Came to read this book through Global Peace Academy where I am interning this year. Simple and poignant illustration of how senseless we can be. When we skim all the layers we see how the biggest conflicts can rise from the smallest of misunderstandings or thoughts.

Simple line drawings accompany a profound, though simply stated, commentary on the folly of war. Suggested age range 6 to 9yrs.

A deep, ponderous, powerful story with fabulous line drawings about the cyclical futility of war. An outstanding book for discussion.

I used this book to generate a discussion about why war is waged. The tale is simple, and it makes a difficult topic accessible.
