Recommended by

Ingrid Marquardt
D’après le roman d’Olivier Bourdeaut, cette BD suit la vie folle d’un petit garçon, ses parents, et leur oiseau exotique. Ses parents sont complètement fous d’amour l’un pour l’autre et il n’y a pas vraiment de règles, ni de place pour la négativité dans leur vies. Mais quand sa mère commence à avoir des troubles d’humeur, est ce que père et fils peuvent continuer leur belle vie?
