Aw, this is a very sweet little book about a young boy wondering where his mother has gone. He has been told she has gone away. The slightly older girl who lives next door starts reading him postcards from his mum telling of her adventures around the world. Its an autobiographical story too by the author, Jean. Its very sweet, sad and short too with only a few panels on each page so it doesn’t take long to read. I really like the drawing, it’s a really nice way to draw children in a very French cartooning style.
