François  Lelord - Once Upon a Time There Was a Blue Planet


An inspiring new novel by the internationally bestselling author of Hector

Young Robin is overwhelmed when he climbs out of his space capsule. The warm sand under his feet, the gentle wind and the play of colours on the sea are so much better than any virtual reality, no matter how perfect. He is on Earth, that distant blue planet he has hitherto only known from films and hearsay.

Yet his mission is not an easy one: Will human beings be able to return to the home planet they needed to leave after a catastrophe? How should they live if happiness is to be made possible for everyone? And will Robin manage to save his big love?

The new book by the major bestselling author: an inspiring story of discovery, a thought-provoking utopia and a reflection about what we will need in the future to be happy.

For all readers of John Strelecky and Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt.

"The books of François Lelord continue in contemporary style where Exupéry left off."
