THE LOVE SERIES:

But being alone, he is watched with cautious eyes by those families he encounters along the way, including a coalition of rival males in search of their own pride to conquer.So the nomad searches patiently, waiting for the opportunity to claim his territory and find a new family. But loneliness can breed ferocity… LOVE: THE FOXIt’s not easy being one of the smaller predators in the woods, competing with an entire woodland population for scraps along the food chain. But when nature throws cataclysmic weather into the mix, it becomes a race for survival… and Love.This second volume in the celebrated LOVE series is another beautiful all-ages title that explores genuine natural behavior through the dramatic lens of Disney-esque storytelling, like a nature documentary in lavish, wordless illustration. LOVE: THE TIGERA lush paradise when viewed from a distance, providing camouflage to a daily Hell of trials and survival for those who live there. Portrayed as a day in the life of the king of the jungle, this lavishly illustrated story follows a single majestic tiger through a wordless adventure as it hunts prey and defends itself from other would-be killers defending their own territory. This exciting tale by Frédéric Brrémaud is told without narration or dialogue, conveyed entirely through the beautiful illustrations of Federico Bertolucci.
