Lino’s Ballad

Text and illustrations from Mathilde Brosset

Lino’s a traveler. From village to village, he sings his song in exchange for a hot meal. But among the  fish, sheep, herons or chameleons, nobody welcomes this vagabond who doesn’t look like them. Wherever he goes, however, Lino finds new companions who take to the road with him, forming a troupe that will grow even larger as time goes by.

Mathilde Brosset

Mathilde Brosset is a French author-illustrator living in Brussels. After several years of study at the Beaux-arts de Bordeaux and the Université du Québec à Montréal, she joined the Institut Saint Luc (Brussels) in illustration.

As an alternative to traditional drawing, collage allows her to work on large formats and to adjust her composition as she goes along, like a puzzle whose pieces are moved around until they find their place. She creates illustrations for magazines and leads creative workshops in museums, schools, libraries and bookstores.

Her previous albums, “Meunier, tu dors?”, “Le bout de la ligne”, and “Me pas fais pas rire! “are published by L’atelier du poisson soluble.
