A lovely story about a boy who wants to get rid of his annoying shadow
Running from my shadow is the first book co-written by Catherine Arnoux and Laurence de Rosen, just released in Fall 2015. Catherine Arnoux who has been living in Princeton for many years and being very active in the French community as the President of the local French association (ASFP) started illustrations over 10 years ago, finding together with Laurence the words to unroll the journey of the main character, a boy who wants to get rid of his annoying shadow.
Despite many moves abroad, Catherine Arnoux and Laurence de Rosen, who is now psychotherapist in Paris, finally decided in 2015 to make the book “come alive”. They also translated the text to make it as a bilingual book (English and French) aimed at kids from 3-year-old. After showing their project to friends, librarians and professionals, they got encouraged with some great feedback. And with the help of Suzy Basta, a graphic designer who put together their texts and illustrations on a computerized format, the book got ready to be printed.
