Since his teacher asked him to do a news report, Marco won’t let go of his imaginary microphone. Everything that happens in the life of the eight-year-old boy becomes the subject of a “feature”. Marco has so many things to tell that he loses sleep over it. Unable to take it anymore, his parents try to forbid him to use his microphone. Marco then starts to draw stories on a wall... on two walls... on all the walls! An ingenious and funny book.

  • You’ll see how Larry Tremblay takes a firm grasp of reality and relays it to us fairly through words, which speaks volumes about his keen sense of observation. - La Bible urbaine
  • So many quips make for a delicious mix of absurdity, candour and carelessness that brings out Marco’s authenticity. - Le Devoir
