Pierrot’s imagination leads him to have a zig-zag journey from one place to another where he is often either outside or in his bedroom, impatiently attempting to grab a book from a high shelf (and, not to our surprise, Newton’s 3rd law comes into effect at this moment — as the snail says to Pierrot).

The Conductor by Laetitia Devernay is a wordless picture book which tells the tale of a conductor orchestrating the leaves off the tree’s.
