Diego and the fox Mademoiselle Rose spend time with one another and become dear friends during the trials of war. Until Alberto returns when the war is over. Nobody really knows whether Alberto has left the door open to the street on purpose, or not.
Based on a true story of a tame lady fox and the famous Giacometti brothers Alberto and Diego. this touching graphic novel / children’s book brings us with its warm and atmospheric illustrations in the middle of the Paris Atelier during WW II.
