Author

Édouard Manceau was born in 1969 in Vendée, where he grew up in the countryside. His mother, a teacher, told him stories, while his father, a design office manager, introduced him to music. At school, he preferred to play with his brothers, sisters, and cousins. He began to work with children when he was 16, and really enjoyed these interactions. He joined the Ecole des Beaux-Arts d’Angers at the age of 22 and graduated with a degree in visual communications. He then returned in 2006 as a guest examiner! After travelling the world in the 1990s, he began to exhibit his work as a painter, and discovered that children were interested in his art. This prompted him to write stories for little ones and his first book was published in 1999. He currently lives in Toulouse, and has written more than one hundred children’s books, often translated abroad. He won the ‘Prix des Incorruptibles’ in 2011 – kindergarten category – for “Tout pour ma pomme” and in 2012 for “Si tous les éléphants s’appelaient Bertrand…”. He was also awarded the ‘Prix Sorcières’ – toddler category – in 2015 for “Le Petit Curieux”.
