Deep in the Forest

Written by Josef Antòn | Illustrated by Lucie Brunellière
Abrams Books | March 7, 2017

Deep in the forest, early in the morning, the animals slowly wake—except the panda, who is sleeping in. The monkey stretches, the red ant hides, the black bear yawns, and the gazelle smiles. But where is the okapi? Can you find it?
Over 50 animals—including the okapi—hide on the pages of this beautiful board book. The gorgeous forest scenes take readers from morning to night, from high in the trees to deep underground. Deep in the Forest is as much a visual treat as it is an introduction to exotic animals.

Author Joseph Jacquet (pseudonym Josef Anton), works in animation research and development for French television. He also has a long career in writing books.

Illustrator Lucie Brunellière studied applied arts in Angoul.me and visual communication at the Estienne School. She works at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg, France.

REVIEWS

"A pleaser for younger lovers of animals and visual puzzles alike. "Kirkus
 
"Antòn pairs casual observations about the creatures with invitations for readers to locate particular animals in the images and under flaps. Brunellière’s expressive, high-contrast graphics provide lots of eye candy."Publishers Weekly

Gaddafi's Harem

In Gaddafi’s Harem, an instant bestseller when it was published in France, Le Monde special correspondent Annick Cojean gives Soraya a voice, and adds to her story through interviews with other women who were abused by Gaddafi. The book is an astonishing portrait of the tragedies of dictatorship: how power gone unchecked can wreak havoc on the most intensely personal level. It is also a document of great significance to the new Libya, where there is a conspiracy of silence regarding Gaddafi’s sexual crimes and where the new regime desperately needs to confront the tragedies of its recent past.
