Matthieu Chedid has once again united his tribe around a creative project. ‘an event record book for children, called “Grandes Oreilles” (big ears)! A musical tale about difference and self-acceptance.
A musical tale about difference
The book tells the story of Pilou. Pilou no longer likes to play or even to laugh. He can no longer stand the mockery of his friends about his protruding ears. One evening, he walks away from the playground, determined to be alone until the darkness makes his big ears disappear in plain sight. As night falls, Pilou sees them growing, opening up, becoming so huge that he feels he is about to fly away. Carried away by a swarm of swallows, he takes off and sets off on a magnificent journey. By overlooking the beauty of the world, Pilou will understand how precious his ears are to him and will finally accept his difference.
