Ella Zheng (Partner & Art Director/The Workbench)Edmond The Moonlit Party illustrated by Marc Boutavant and written by Astrid Desbordes is one of the favourite children story books I love. Marc brings Astrid’s storytelling beautifully to live with the wonderful illustrations. Young designers need to learn the beauty of translating content into illustration and even more simply so for children story books. How do you make it simple enough to understand but interesting enough to keep them absorbed? That’s the true challenge.
In Edmond, The Moonlit Party, Edmond the squirrel is shy and a bit lonely, but he nevertheless believes that his life is just as it should be. He's happy making his colorful pompoms, stirring his nut jam, and going to sleep early. But one evening, when there's once again a party in his apartment house tree, the fragrance of his jam brings an unexpected visitor to his door. With the entrance of Owl, an aficionado of disguises and fun, into his life, everything begins to change for Edmond. Not only does he agree to attend Owl's party. He goes and has the best evening ever, and the world seems deeper and more wonderful than ever before, and just right, too!
Awash with rich color and the funniest, liveliest details ever, Edmond, The Moonlit Party is thoughtful and thought provoking as well as just plain fun! Each page deepens the story while providing a rich serving of visual pleasure!
