A stunning picture book in which two different voices, a child and a squirrel, tell their own experience of the same moments, day after day

There are days that seem very average, and others that are extraordinary and surprising. In Days Like This, the peaks and valleys of everyday life are seen through two different narrative voices, a child and a squirrel. And although they experience the same arresting moments and fleeting instants, their perspectives are quite different.

About the author

Oriane Smith was born in a foggy seaside town in France. She moved to Montréal, Canada, in 2014, trading the waves of the sea for snow-covered forests. As an author, speech therapist, and musician, Smith loves to create stories with both words and sounds. After studying graphic arts in Rennes, Alice Gravier moved to Paris, where she still lives today, to launch her career as an illustrator. In her graphic explorations, she mostly focuses on the little details, the simple things that make up our daily lives, such as people and the way they walk.
