Histoire de Perlette







I didn't find out much regarding this work from illustrator Béatrice Appia (1899-1998). It was released as a part of the Père Castor (Father Castor or Beaver) childrens book series in 1936 by Flammarion Publishers and basically tells of the adventures of a drop of water from cloud to earth and back again. There are about 15 of these lush illustrations in thumbnail format.

I own a copy of that book!

I bought it about 15 years ago at a flea market in Milan, Italy.

I really want this book! Yet another thing to collect: French children's books.
