A scrapbook with cut-outs and flip-outs, full of humour and fun, for children aged 3-6
In a street inhabited by monsters, a grandfather teaches his granddaughter not to trust her looks! Attitudes towards differences and tolerance, treated with humour.
The book reveals a seemingly creepy street inhabited by a cerberus, a cyclops, a minotaur, a spear... which we discover when we open the doors and windows of our homes. A little girl, a little frightened, has to walk along this house to reach her grandfather. He teaches her that behind every monster is a sensitive soul.
The message of the filmmakers encourages children (and adults) to ask themselves more questions about appearance, which can (sometimes) be deceiving. In fact, to uncover the true personality of the inhabitants, readers of little∙e∙s will have to keep a cool head and walk backwards on the sidewalk.
Although Rue de la peur is, at first sight, a creepy children's book, it contains concepts of tolerance, difference, tenderness and humour.
