How a young Aborigine, with the help of a long and hollow wooden tube (the didgeridoo), pushed back the sky, thus allowing men and nature to blossom, and invented music.
At the beginning of time, there was so little space between the sky and the earth that men had to crawl on hands and knees to move around. But one day, a boy found a wooden tube, very straight and hard, and decided to use it for pushing back the sky with all his strength. He pushed up the sky to make room for trees to grow, and for kangaroos to jump. He pushed it again, until mountains could rise up from the ground. Then the boy blew hard in the hollow wooden tube, and suddenly music was heard…
Frédéric Marais plunges into the origin of the world and of music, with the talent he is now famous for. Getting his inspiration from aboriginal art, and reducing his palette to a deep blue and a vivid orange, he offers a breathtaking picture book.
