Mummy?! is a fun and poetic book for little ones. Zéphyr wanders around the family home, looking for his mummy. She is not very far away, and shows him where she is, with her distant, gentle and playful words.
This young child’s quest is a pretext for discovering the little things which sprinkle everyday life, and let us see the imagination shared between the mummy and her little one, but also the difference that exist between the adult’s world and the child’s world.
Like a step towards independence… Mummy?! is also a book that beats around the bush!
