I have discovered the books by Loreto Corvalan when we visited Chile last January. We stayed at  Tierra Patagonia and the hotel had a wonderful children’s corner with amazing books and toys by local artist. Loreto, who is Chilean, moved to Paris in 1985 and she now lives and works in Normandie. Initially a geographer, Loreto did a post-graduate in Arts in Nantes after she got her  “Diplome National d’Expression plastique” from the “Ecole des Beaux Arts” in Toulouse. Her illustrations are very special and her children’s books have been published in Chile as well as in France (Editions Thierry Magnier). Here’s some images of her last book “Horacio ne veut pas aller a l’École” / “Horatio no quiere ir a la escuela”.
