Where did all these pieces of paper come from? Who do they belong to?
The chicken is sure that they belong to him, but so is the fish, and so is the bird, and the snail, and the frog… Using the same small scraps of paper over and over again to create a new animal on each page, Édouard Manceau has created a timeless cumulative tale that will delight and enchant children as they try to figure out just who the pieces of paper do belong to…

ÉDOUARD MANCEAU was born in Vendée, France, and began studying Fine Arts at an early age. He often works in paper collage, bringing his friendly characters to life with style and humor. He is the author and illustrator of Windblown.

A surefire inspiration for imagination-fueled projects at school or at home. - Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

A book that at first glance might seem minimalist to the point of vacuity bears closer scrutiny when one appreciates the function the paper shapes can have in allowing a child to identify them in different orientations and even to practice counting. - Kirkus Reviews

Manceau offers just enough possibilities to ignite youngsters' imaginations, then sends them off to try some creations of their own.
- Jennifer M. Brown, Shelf Awareness for Readers

An effective tale for young children, using deceptively, delightfully simple design work. - Jesse Karp, Booklist

Windblown is a book that screams, 'Turn me into a craft already!!!'…It reaches its full potential when the concept of the book is translated in real life. I hope that happens often.
- Travis Jonker, 100 Scope Notes

the story will appeal to the imagination of the early-years set. - Reesa Cohen, Canadian Review of Materials

While this book at first seems as minimalist and innovative as Herve Tullet's Press Here, a more traditional story line soon emerges as several characters appear, providing a cumulative narration in which each claims ownership of the shapes.
- The Horn Book

This book makes a useful jumping off point for a paper making activity, a weather activity on wind, or even a litter collection activity in the classroom!
- Books for Kids Blog

It's truly AMAZING what you can make with shapes ... Edouard Manceau proves it with panache and wondrous imagination in his newest book. - Sal's Fiction Addiction
