My Planet

(script and illustrations)

Emmanuelle Houdart lends her voice to a little boy and explores his rich imagination in a very tender and rich album.

« I have no idea what your life is like, but mine is EXTRAORDINARY ! » Thus begins the wild story of our young hero. The story begins early one morning in a child’s bedroom, with the protagonist slowly waking up. Around him, a variety of toys, a cheerful mess, full of different things the reader will have fun spotting over the following pages. The young boy proudly tells us how, after a horrible war in his galaxy, he landed on a strange planet populated by monsters : earthlings. Adopted by a couple of these creatures, he quickly manages to fit in and narrates his achievements, and his observations on the odd behaviour of these earthlings. The tone of this confident kid is joyfull. We follow his endearing adventures in the human world, until the final double-page spread. Out of his bed, we see him surrounded by a perfectly normal human family… just like him. In this beautiful album, Emmanuelle Houdart evokes the infinite and wonderful power of children’s imagination. With great authenticity, she gives a voice full of mischievousness to this boy, superhero for the length of a dream, a game, or maybe his whole life…? With Emmanuelle Houdart, reading gives you superpowers !
