Text and illustrations by Mathilde Brosset

Today, it’s a party! The children have put on their best costume: bird, whale, dragon or butterfly.

But Nils is crying: he is not disguised like the others. His friends decide to cut out little pieces of cloth from their costumes. It’s enough to turn Nils into a harlequin!

This book pays tribute to the legend of the famous character from the commedia dell’arte. The collage technique of Mathilde Brosset is not unlike the patchwork made of pieces of fabric.

A rhythmic album, playing on repetition and accumulation.

Author / Illustrator

Mathilde Brosset is a French author-illustrator living in Brussels. After several years of study at the Beaux-arts de Bordeaux and the Université du Québec à Montréal, she joined the Institut Saint Luc (Brussels) in illustration.

As an alternative to traditional drawing, collage allows her to work on large formats and to adjust her composition as she goes along, like a puzzle whose pieces are moved around until they find their place. She creates illustrations for magazines and leads creative workshops in museums, schools, libraries and bookstores.

Her previous albums, “Meunier, tu dors?”, “Le bout de la ligne”, and “Me pas fais pas rire! “are published by L’atelier du poisson soluble.
