Zarafa by Rémi Bezançon( Visual )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in French and English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by the true story of the first giraffe to visit France, Zarafa is a sumptuously animated and stirring adventure, and a throwback to a bygone era of hand-drawn animation and epic storytelling set among sweeping CinemaScope vistas of parched desert, wind-swept mountains and open skies. Under the cover of darkness a small boy, Maki, loosens the shackles that bind him and escapes into the desert night. Pursued by slavers across the moon-lit savannah, Maki meets Zarafa, a baby giraffe - and an orphan, just like him - as well as the nomad Hassan, Prince of the Desert. Hassan takes them to Alexandria for an audience with the Pasha of Egypt, who orders him to deliver the exotic animal as a gift to King Charles of France. And so Maki, Zarafa and Hassan take off in a hot-air balloon to cross the Mediterranean, setting off an adventure across Northern Africa, the bustling port of Marseilles, and over the snow-capped peaks of the Alps, arriving at last in Paris. But all the while, Maki is determined to find a way to return Zarafa to her rightful home

Es ist die Geschichte über eine dieser Begegnungen, die das ganze Leben verändern können: das Zusammentreffen in einem Park zwischen Germain (Gérard Depardieu), um die 50, praktisch Analphabet, und Margueritte (Gisèle Casadesus), einer kleinen alten Dame und leidenschaftlichen Leserin. Vierzig Jahre und hundert Kilo trennen sie. Eines Tages setzt sich Germain zufällig neben sie. Margueritte liest ihm Passagen aus Romanen vor und eröffnet ihm die Welt und die Magie der Bücher, von denen sich Germain immer ausgeschlossen fühlte. Für sein Umfeld, die Freunde im Bistro, die ihn bis jetzt für einen Einfaltspinsel hielten, wechselt die Dummheit mit einem Mal die Seite ... Aber Margueritte verliert immer mehr ihr Augenlicht und aus tief empfundener Freundschaft zu dieser charmanten, verschmitzten und aufmerksamen alten Dame, übt Germain lesen und zeigt ihr, dass er in der Lage sein wird, ihr vorzulesen, wenn sie selbst es nicht mehr kann.

6 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pour ce 15e rendez-vous, François-Xavier Demaison part à la rencontre des Raïka. Ces bergers semi-nomades vivent au "pays des rois", le Rajasthan, état du nord-ouest de l'Inde. Leurs animaux assurent leur subsistance et sont le pilier d'une culture où chaque forme de vie est religieusement respectée. L'animal est considéré comme l'égal de l'homme et les Dieux sont vénérés au quotidien. Mais la modernité resserre son étau autour des Raïka. Certains passent l'hiver au coeur des montagnes sauvages, profitant de quelques mois d'abondance. Ils y trouvent les pâturages qui partout ailleurs disparaissent. L'apparente douceur de vivre laisse entrevoir un quotidien difficile et des traditions de plus en plus remises en question par la jeune génération
