Clea Dieudonne

Teeming with illustrations and full of funny details, Megalopolis is a book of wonders that will provide hours of entertainment!

Review

It seems French illustrators just love to experiment with what picture books can do. Megalopolis unfolds like a scroll to more than three metres long: it’s a book not just for the eyes but for the knees and elbows, too. When an alien from another galaxy arrives in Megalopolis the citizens are as fascinated by him as he is by this new world.

With a whiff of Jules Verne to this playful adventure, there are fireworks and marching bands and games to play and cakes to eat and that’s just the welcome party. Readers aged 3–6 will want to explore Megalopolis again and again and again.
