Jean is an adorable 5 year-old boy who lives happily with his busy daddy, combatant younger brother and kind nanny. So why is there this pervasive emptiness inside? Then he begins to receive fanciful postcards from his absent mommy... With sensitivity and emotion, but never lapsing into melodrama, Bravo and Regnaud tell their story and remind us that children are not the only ones who would rather invent than deal with reality. My Mommy won several awards in France, including a 2008 Literary Tam Tam Award and a 2008 Essentials Award in Angouleme. Hardcover, color.
