A short summary of Petites météorologies :

Petites météorologies is the story of a cloud that has come out of a coffee pot. It sails through the pages of the album, its landscapes, its chronology as well as its cities and eventually meets another cloud. There are windows along the dreamy voyage of the little cloud, windows that the reader will want to open to go off in another direction. And behind the windows hidden in the little shacks, the trees and the houses, there are the meteorologies of the heart. This is a beautiful book full of wingless fowl, undelivered mail and secret tales. It is the story of a trip told in pictures rather than words.
