Séverine Assous

After studying at the Decorative Arts of Paris, Séverine Assous was for a long time an artistic director in advertising. She now divides her time between press, advertising and children’s literature publishing. In 2016, she won a Bologna Ragazzi Award in the non-fiction category for her book Génération robots (Actes Sud Junior). More recently, she published at hélium the mischievous albums imagined by Carole Fives, How to keep your parents? (2017) and At Your Age (2019).


Her favorite hélium book is the pop-up Oh my hat! by Anouck Boisrobert and Louis Rigaud, because she adores the colorful palette.
