Adèle is a very shy woman who puts her head in her handbag each time she goes outside.
She works in a rubber-ducky factory where she controls the quality of the ducks’ quack.
She likes to take walks in the wind and talk with her neighbors: Philémon, the writer who walks on his hands and Eléonore, who wears her clothes backwards.
One day, feeling sad and lonely, she starts crying and drenches her purse in tears.
The next day a secret garden has sprung up inside the bag, and Adèle finds new confidence in herself.
This charming book, with its expressionistic graphics gorgeously complement the uplifting message, will entertain children and adults alike.
