StoryMakers with Hervé Tullet | MIX ITUP!

“I’ve got a very simple vocabulary. My vocabulary is about dots, circles, scribbles, and lines.” — Hervé Tullet

Hervé Tullet’s children’s books follow a path of simple lines, raw and energetic, that take the reader on an expedition.

Hervé delights us with a reading of The Trail Game and an excerpt from Mix it UP! Learn how he discovers ideas for books that create a playful dialog with young readers. His sense of fun is contagious!

“I think you could find your own way to create your own voice and create your own way to dialogue with people. A child can do the same thing.”
— Hervé Tullet

I don’t have a favorite book, but his books look like so much fun for adults and children reading together! I love the chance to be silly and laugh. Thanks for the giveaway.

Kid Lit TV Commenter J Gribble

It’s great fun to see him read to an adult audience, too! He had a room of 1200 writing conference attendees laughing like little kids!

Kid Lit TV Commenter Rosie

I think that these book look like they could give my ELLs a sense of role play with less stress, because they could use the level of English they have acquired without feeling the lack of fluency that they haven’t yet mastered. It will allow them to be who they are for the moment and work towards higher goals.

Thanks for sharing a peek of Herve’s process! Press Here is my favorite.

Kid Lit TV Commenter Cynthia Carlin Drake

I cannot say enough about M. Tullet. He is the most brilliant author and illustrator and the kindest man ever. I teach Head Start and my classroom full of literacy starved preschoolers absolutely love him. To them, he is ‘my friend Herve Tullet’. I cannot pick a favorite book of his on merit because they are all absolutely wonderful but I will have to say “Press Here” because it was the first book of his I ever read, the first one I read to my preschoolers and the beginning of a delightful journey.

Kid Lit TV Commenter J Gribble

I agree, Cynthia! Each book is an event — a day’s worth of creative activities could be created from each one.

Kid Lit TV Commenter Zainab

Another Tullet fan! What I found fascinating is that he could improvise so well his presentation at a conference. We were laughing and 100 percent engaged. Incroyable! PRESS HERE is my favorite.

Kid Lit TV Commenter J Gribble

He listens to the his audience, which is so important when creating a dialog.

Kid Lit TV Commenter Hilary Leung

“Press Here” and “Mix it up” are our family favourites at the moment!

Kid Lit TV Commenter Lynne Marie

i LOVE the dialogue-inspiring aspects of his books. Really enjoyed this!
