Santa Fruta

(script), (illustrations)

Bigoudi’s duo is back in this funny and sensitive picture book about the importance of contemplating the world.

In the Colorado desert, a cactus is feeling bored. Thousands of kilometers away, a cat loves nothing better than to lie flat on the ground next to the radiator. Following advice from a psychologist for cats, both his owners decide to take him on the exotic trips they love so much. To be ferried from country to country, in a suitcase, is a cat’s worst nightmare. Until one day, in the middle of the desert, the cat meets… the cactus. A lovely friendship, both unlikely and gentle, is born. Delphine Perret’s text is moving, funny and deep. Sébastien Murrain illustrates the story with humor and delicacy. In a world where everything moves really fast, Santa Fruta stresses the importance of enjoying small everyday things, and taking the time to be bored.
