She enjoys using and working with all sorts of papers, and salvaged materials mixed with painting and color pencil. "Mon Doudou" is her first book.


Publishers Weekly
French author/illustrator Beauvisage, in her first children's book, celebrates the many things a blanket can do. Her young hero has a flair for the adventurous ("With my blankie, I build tents and igloos... I become a pirate... or the King of Rollerblading"), but he's also happy to use his polka-dotted blanket as a tea party tablecloth (and napkin) and to cuddle with it, of course. The warm golds and reds of the boy's blanket set a comforting tone in themselves, and the playful presence of a trio of stuffed animals highlights the rich sense of imagination that drives the story. Up to age 3. (Aug.)

A blankie book with no I-lost-my-blankie trauma? Indeed, this is a 12-page ode to the many glories of the fuzzy (and probably frowsy and cruddy) companion, featuring a brown-haired child dragging his brownand-red blankie through various collage backgrounds. With a Linus-like skill, our protagonist fashions his blankie into an igloo, a wolf, a sailboat sail, a tabletop, and more, though the best thing about it is the nighttime snuggling. "My blankie is a Super Blankie!" he cries to the general disgruntlement of his overlooked stuffed animals. Sturdy construction makes this the perfect thing for bedtime reading--it won't get crushed, not even inside a tight blankie embrace.
