Long fairy tale (illustrated novel) written and illustrated by Jacques Carelman.

It is a rarity, because in the world only 1500 copies were printed and only sold in France (and therefore, it is only in French language).

In addition, very little is known of this book, although its author was famous.


The beautiful Jessica, beloved of the storms, gave birth to a daughter, called Saroka, who grows with the passage of time.

But Saroka terrifies the men and must flee to her ardent regret. Her last refuge: petrification. But it is only an illusion: new giants are carved in stone.
