Deliberately 100% non-digital, wave, and screen-free, My Little Morphée is designed to avoid any disruptive blue light from digital devices in the bedroom, which can prevent children from falling asleep easily.

Within those 192 options, there are 128 soothing visual journeys that will transport your child to many different destinations, think islands, deserts and forests, guided by an animal of their choice.  Each animal represents a different facet of emotions, be it confidence, enthusiasm, wisdom, generosity, happiness, courage, curiosity and independence, helping children to develop their own sense of self.

Latest Books

No One Is Angry Today, Toon Tellegen

No One Is Angry Today comprises 10 short stories with animal characters exploring the varying aspects of anger, whether overt, subtle, or suppressed.

In the first tale, a firebelly toad’s anger takes the form of harsh and violent attacks on other animals, causing them great pain. The toad demands expressions of anger from the victims but perceives their anger as not real or strong enough. The victims are upset because they cannot understand the immensity of the firebelly toad’s anger. In another story, a squirrel is sad that his ant friend has gone away; he cannot be angry but waits patiently for the ant’s return, but his anger is displaced, strangely enough, onto the walls of his home.

Most of the tales involve animals in varying stages of anger, some directing it inward, some lashing out at others, some fearing another’s anger, and some letting it go. Many of the male animals are actively aggressive, while many of the females display stereotypes. The ant needs to be rescued, the praying mantis is a fashionista, and the frog displays jealousy. Boutavant’s rich, nuanced illustrations depict the animals as expressing human emotions and living in humanlike dwellings while still remaining true to their species in appearance. Youngsters might be quite perplexed by the tales, for Tellegen rarely provides clues to the characters’ motivations and often leaves readers to arrive at their own conclusions. They would be well served by reading and discussing the work with a loving grown-up.
