Claude Ponti
Translated from the French by Alyson Waters

Claude Ponti is one of France’s most celebrated children’s writers. Ponti has said of his works, “My stories are like fairytales, always situated in the marvelous, speaking to the interior life and emotions of children.” My Valley immerses readers in the enchanted world of the Twims (tiny, lovable, monkey-like creatures), a world where trees keep secrets, magic seeds grow into huge ships, and singing stones make children’s wishes come true.

Elsewhere Editions is a children’s imprint from Archipelago Books, devoted to translating imaginative picture books from around the world. We hope that these titles will enrich children’s imaginations and cultivate curiosity about other cultures, as well as delight with their humor, art, and playful spirit.
