Belly Baby

(script and illustrations)

After the bestseller A Mum It’s Like A House, Aurore Petit recounts in a delicate and sensitive manner the arrival of a second child.

Right now, no one (or almost no one) suspects that I exist…

In her new picture book, Aurore Petit details the steps of a new pregnancy from the point of view of the new child.

If the baby to come tells us what he or she feels and perceives inside the belly, we, the readers, discover him or her from the outside with for example the first time we hear the baby’s heartbeat or the announcement to the future big brother.

The bright colored illustrations enable the reader to explore a whole new world of sensations (noises, the touch of the hands on mom’s belly, the taste of sweet flavours…). Aurore Petit delicately invites us into a very intimate yet universal subject matter. The birth, at the end of this picture book, is the start of a new life.
