Read in August, 2012

The illustrations by Saul Bass echo (or rather foreshadow) Blexbolex’s Seasons, but this book has a sweet and funny story to go along with the pictures.

Henri lives in the tiny town of Reboul, but he feels like his heart is in Paris. One day he cannot wait any longer and sets out to walk there. After falling asleep in the woods along the way, his walk takes him to a Paris very different from what he expected.

The story and illustrations are reprinted from 1962 and make for a book that’s just as charming now as it must have been when it was originally published.
