Julien is walking his dog. Without him noticing, he is carried away by an eagle. Now Julien is walking his eagle. But that was before he was replaced by a tiger. Until it is substituted by a fox, itself kidnapped by an octopus, and then a fly, a unicorn, and so on, until Julien’s dog returns. In this sublime picture book made of cut-out paper, the extraordinary invades the ordinary thanks to a simple but subtle phenomenon of accumulation. The child is amused by the element of surprise: which animal will be next ? Will Julien ever realize what’s going on ?
