Aboard this little train travelling around the world, passengers and their luggage pile up. Everybody is ready for a wonderful vacation! Even Mr Hippo, who, let’s face it, is a little annoying! As passengers exit the train, will you be able to guess which animals are hiding behind the shadows standing on the station platforms? Here’s a hint, sometimes, things are not what they seem!


Rhéa Dufresne, author

Rhea is a Jill-of-all-trades. She happily practises, in no particular order, the following professions: book reviewer, editorial director, instructor, and author. Many of her books were born out of a question crossing her mind at some point. Others were born out of a character who appeared unannounced in her head, or simply from a title passing like a gust of wind through her little overactive brain.

Marion Arbona, illustrator

After obtaining a diploma in animation film at Arts Décoratifs de Paris, Marion Arbona started working as an illustrator for children’s books. When she is not drawing, she is particularly interested in deep-sea fishes, cats (even though she is allergic) and weird plants. She also likes reading and watching movies. Her favourite gouache colour is light cadmium red. Marion was awarded several illustration prizes in the USA and in Canada where she lived for 10 years. She returned to live in Paris in 2015.


  • Even reading this album several times filled with madness and effervescence, we always discover details that have escaped us. A real pleasure for our curious eyes. - Karine Hudon, Prix jeunesse des libraires du Québec Link to review
  • An abundant album, funny and flashy - Marie Allard, La Presse+
