2050, Paris n'est plus qu'un torrent de violences, le terrain de jeu de fanatiques déchus. L'air n'est plus respirable. Les hologrammes ont remplacé les hommes. Le travail n'est plus que le privilège de quelques-uns. Sous l'hégémonie de Dame Consommation, il est devenu interdit de fabriquer et réparer.
Ce livre est un signal d'alerte. Il est futuriste sans être fantaisiste. Un livre terrifiant de vérités aux premières pages et saisissant d'espoir aux dernières. Un très beau roman d'anticipation, empli d'humanité. Un bel appel au vivre ensemble et au retour à l'autosuffisance.
Amazing Robots / Incroyables robots (English-Frenchbilingual comic book)
A robot contest ! It didn't take more to have Mrs Smiths' class wholeheartedly rush headlong into the road to victory and build their own prototype. As the outcome reaches its conclusion, though, things do not appear as certain as they had seemed to be beforehand : will their mascot of a robot live up to the challenge and meet their expectations ? This story was inspired by what really happened to the author and some of his primary school pupils in Texas.
