Sitting on an island, a young child watches the world. He observes its troubles and he thinks ?about how the world could be different, and better.
What if it was the child who decided to be born? Here, from the belly of his mother, now round like an island, the child looks out at the world. Despite all of the trouble and heartache, he decides to be born, strong in his belief that he can help make the world a better place. Stunningly illustrated by Olivier Tallec, with strong colors and sketchy lines, WHAT IF... is a book that gives us a sense of purpose in being born, reminding us that our task is caring for the world and for each other.

About the Author

Thierry Lenain was born in 1959. He began to write when he became a father, and never stopped, even after becoming a grandfather. He defines his own writing as “parental” in the sense of “accompanying children;” children who he, above all, wants to give the power to think for themselves and for the world of tomorrow.

Olivier Tallec’s work has been called “sensitive”, “stunning”, “breathtaking”, and “beautiful.” Tallec was born in Brittany, France, in 1970. After graduating from the École Supérieure D’arts Graphiques in Paris, he worked in advertising as a graphic designer, after which he devoted himself to illustration. Since then he has illustrated more than sixty books, nine of which have been published by Enchanted Lion.
