Young Paul Belin’s biting and hilarious conversion to vegetarianism
Eight-year-old Paul Belin leads a quiet life with his family until one day, someone rings the doorbell. When he opens the door, he discovers two hens come to take him to… his own trial.
The boy is accused of having eaten, since his earliest childhood, an incalculable number of sausages, hamburgers, chicken wings… And who attends the trial? Hens, adorable chicks, goats, a very large cow and many others. Will any of the animals take pity on Paul Belin?
An absurd tale about vegetarianism and its place in today’s society, the guilt that some meat eaters feel and the complicated relationship between humans and animals. With an even more hilarious ending (watch out for the carrots!).
