award "Enfantaisie 2007" was given at the Geneva
international book fair at the stand of the Payot Bookshop.
For twenty years, this award has distinguished the best album
for the children from 7 to 10 years old, the decision is made
by a jury of children on the basis of seven albums pre-selected.
The ceremony started with an amusing music by Alexandre Cellier
and his partner Jean Duperrex, a perfect beginning! After
that, a small speech by Pascal Vandenberghe, general manager
of Payot Bookshop and Christophe Passer, editor of the magazine
"L'illustré". finally, the children offers
the price, in company of Celine Fossati, and they could explain
why they had chosen "Almanavache". Adeline Yzac
and Montse Gisbert answered the questions of the jury (the
children were very intimidated, in fact). Then, it was time
for a signings session (with quatres hands!). And to conclude
this charming afternoon : a nice and friendly drink! Thanks
to Payot Bookshop and the magazine "L'illustré"
and all the team for their kindness : Celine Fossati (journalist,
"L'illustré"), Natacha Décoppet (project
manager, "Ringier Romandie"), Mariette Dudan (chargée
de mission, Payot) who organize this cheerful event.
