A workshop with Hervé Tullet in Paris

Hervé Tullet's new board-book series 'Let's Play Games!' proves popular with Parisian school children




Known in France as the 'prince of pre-school books', Hervé Tullet - the author and illustrator - takes the concept of reading to a new level, teaching young minds to think imaginatively, independently and creatively. Phaidon.com attended a workshop with him at the Ecole Maternelle Jean Jaurès Sud in Paris and shared the entrancing experience with the class.

In 1994 Tullet published his first children's book and found his vocation. A father to three young children, Tullet is never short of inspiration; his books are a vibrant riot of colours and shapes, perfect for busy minds and little fingers.

Let's Play Games! is a bright and lively series of books that work like games. Children can choose from The Game of Finger Worms, The Game of Mix-up Art, The Game of Light, The Game of Patterns, The Game of Mix and Match and The Game of Let's Go!, all of which are available to order.
