Pied-de-Puce has drawn a family portrait. But her family is not like the other families. And Flee-Foot is not like the other children neither. She has a very personal way of looking at things. And when she gets nervous or sad, words become entangled. A story into which words are not friendly. Where the fight they engage into the little one’s head always fade away when she’s in the tender embrace of aunt Felicia. A story about words and the difficulty of conveying emotions.
