Histoire de Perlette was published in 1936 by Flammarion. It's basically the illustrated life cycle of a water droplet, from morning dew to beachfront evaporation. Bˆ©atrice Appia's artwork is beautiful; although the style is totally different, the waterdrops hanging out together remind me of Billy Blob's Sundance-winning Flash movie, Karma Ghost.
When we got to the last page, where I had to try and make evaporation not sound too much like obliteration, I realized this was like Itsy Bitsy Spider: The Rain's Untold Story
The only downside to all this computer-based kidertainment is that it just feeds the kid's sense of ownership of my keyboard. I should probably be pacing myself a bit better.
