Waterloo & Trafalgar
Title: Waterloo & Trafalgar
Author: Olivier Tallec
In this humorous, wordless picture book with die-cut pages, two soldiers, red and blue, discover the pointlessness of hostility.
As time passes, a snail shows up, and then a bird, and one day, to their utter surprise, they come face-to-face in a different way, and they discover that their differences don’t make them enemies.
Waterloo & Trafalgar has a die-cut cover and interior section-cut flip pages, all of which contribute to allowing the reader to see things in different ways. And that, in the end, is so much of what this book is about: seeing and seeing otherwise.
