Learn about Geneva’s history, as narrated by Allo the Allobrogian who has been buried underneath Geneva Cathedral for 2000 years, and who has witnessed EVERYTHING. How Caesar made Geneva history. Rousseau, the spotty youth. Monkeys at Voltaire’s house. Tsunamis on lake Geneva. Dark Matter at CERN. Peacocks in the park. Naughty dukes, vegetable soup, and chocolate marmites. And MORE.
This non-fiction book about Geneva’s history for children is awaiting funding to also be published in English and in French in 2018. Published by éditions Heuwinkel, Carouge, and illustrated by the fabulous Pierre Wazem.
