Le Monde Vivant

The Living World

Le Monde Vivant is a fairytale for everyone and all age groups - but one that has special appeal for those of us with a preference for intellectual self-mockery and dry humorous minimalism. Green adopts a deceptively faux-naif style in this enchanting story of enchantment. Raymond Queneau meets the Bresson of Lancelot du Lac in an chivalric epic complete with ogres and lions.
