Jean-Philippe Delhomme, Author
From the internationally renowned creator of award-winning advertising campaigns, Visit to Another Planet is a quirky journey to an alien world not too different from our own.
In this brilliant picture book for readers of all ages, acclaimed illustrator and humorist Jean-Philippe Delhomme imagines a parallel alien world where things aren’t quite as they seem. Providing a tour of this odd planet is a precocious kid from Earth who is on a family vacation. Readers delight in learning about bizarre alien creatures, who are green all over with enormous circular snouts the size of dinner plates. They drink green minty milk, and get their chewing gum from bushes. But their world is also full of computers, fast cars, and skyscrapers. In the end, our narrator discovers that these aliens actually have a lot in common with humans. Delhomme’s signature-style impressionistic watercolor paintings accompany the story, which boasts deceptively simple language and humor that appeals to parents and children alike.
Jean-Philippe Delhomme’s illustrations have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Town & Country, Interview, French Vogue, Condé Nast Traveler, Japanese Vogue, and House & Garden. Chanel, Lancôme, Shiseido,
Club Med, Sapporo, and Honda are among his advertising clients. He lives in Paris, France.
