8 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in French and No Linguistic Content and held by 46 libraries worldwide
Gilou est timide, il rougit. Si son professeur l'interroge, la gêne le paralyse. Pour son anniversaire, à sa demande, il reçoit un petit poisson rouge. Il en fait sa mascotte, son ami, son confident. Il le promène, l'amène partout, lui parle et, finalement répond à qui l'interroge à son sujet. Petit à petit sa timidité disparaît et petit à petit, il se fait des copains. Tout cela à cause d'un petit poisson rouge baptisé Rouge Timide. -- Dans ce récit, l'auteur, alias Gillou le Timide, nous livre une parcelle de son enfance. Si le héros pousse un peu loin sa dévotion pour son poisson, ce n'est que pour démontrer qu'il en faut peu pour vaincre ce malaise qui handicap, qui exclue. Un récit tonique pour ceux qui souffrent de timidité, de gêne et autres synonymes. [SDM]
Les petits souliers by Gilles Tibo( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in French and held by 31 libraries worldwide
Un homme raconte comment, lorsqu'il était petit, il ne rêvait que de souliers: des voyages qu'ils lui permettraient de faire, des activités auxquelles il pourrait s'adonner, de disciplines qu'il pourrait pratiquer, de métiers qu'il souhaitait exercer ... Sa collection de chaussures lui permettait de rêver. Devenu adulte, bien que pieds nus lorsqu'il exerce son métier d'écrivain pour la jeunesse, il continue son rêve en "chaussant" les petits souliers des personnages qu'il invente pour atteindre les enfants du monde entier. -- Un récit en partie autobiographique inspiré des oeuvres hyperréalistes et vivantes de Tom Kapas dans lequel Gilles Tibo a projeté la rêverie d'un personnage qui lui ressemble. [SDM]
Le vrai de vrai journal de ma vie by Gilles Tibo( Book )
2 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in French and held by 29 libraries worldwide
Sous la plume candide de Marilou sont évoquées les pensées secrètes d'une fillette, confiées à un journal intime qui peut tout entendre. Ainsi, Marilou colle de petits bouts de papier sur lesquels elle rédige ce qu'elle vit, les émotions qui la font vibrer tout en portant un regard philosophique sur ce qui l'entoure. Pour chaque thème qui ponctue son histoire, elle narre un moment fort de sa vie d'enfant, puis fait la liste de thèmes s'y rapportant, y rédige un petit poème ou une lettre tout en ponctuant ses réflexions de commentaires directement adressés à son journal. On découvre, au fil des pages, ses opinions à propos de la tristesse, la déception, la dispute, la vie, la liberté, la joie et le bonheur, le courage, mais aussi la peur, la guerre, la mort, la paix, la solitude, l'espoir, etc. -- Un album qui initie les enfants de la maternelle et du début du primaire aux émotions ainsi qu'aux grandes questions de la vie. La maturité du personnage surprend parfois, on l'imagine au départ avoir entre 5 et 6 ans, mais la rédaction d'un tel journal ne devrait-elle pas supposer avoir déjà maîtrisé l'écriture? ... Des peintures oniriques, mariant collages et papiers peints, s'insèrent sobrement dans cette mise en pages éclatée empruntée au scrapbooking. Une lecture accompagnée est souhaitable. [SDM]
