La Cabane Bleue – Children’s books that cherish the planet

For more information on translation rights, please contact Florence Pariente: ttipiagency@gmail.com

 

Our editorial line

We publish books for children from 3 to 10 years old which tell them why we should protect the planet, rather than how, in a positive light.

Our books have a singular take on environmental issues, with fun documentaries and docu-fictions, and focus on topics rarely dealt with in children’s books, always with high quality illustrations.

 

How we work

Being ethical for us means working on a collaborative and equal footing with the authors, focusing on distribution in independent sales outlets – no distribution on online sales websites that do not respect our values -, producing a reliable non-fiction content, communicating transparently on costs and manufacturing conditions.

Our artists are concerned with the preservation of the planet and the protection of nature too: we are proud to work with renowned authors, specialists in biology or the environment as well as talented illustrators with strong personal graphic styles.

Our books are printed by a French printer with the green label “Imprim’Vert”, on paper produced from sustainably managed forests. Choosing a unique book format limits paper waste and we do not use lamination on our covers.

As for distribution, we try to keep down returns and pulping of books by carefully evaluating our print-runs, we optimise transport and reuse packing boxes.

We consider this process a necessity, which is both challenging and exciting and we hope you will find our books inspiring!

“I have god eight arms,

six letters,

two huge eyes,

hundreds of suckers

and…

one friend.”

So starts the account of Aglae, a funny small animal who in 1832 meets a certain Charles Darwin. They discover eachother, they tame eachother, and together they will revolutionise science.

A poetix text that highlights the relationship between men and animals and deals with the primary meaning of ecology: the study of interactions between living beings.
