Mathilde is a little girl full of curiosity who loves nature and adventures. She always carries a magnifying glass with her, to discover new fantastic animals. This morning, as there is no school, she’s looking for a little animal that she’s never spotted before: a souvarine. A souvarine is a rare type of rodent. They are very intelligent and like to hide. But the forest is full of adventures, some of which are dangerous...
Dreaming of becoming an explorer, a biologist, or an illustrator isn’t always easy. You have to be ready to draw at any time, and always be attentive to the plants and animals. You also have to be very careful about the dangers, which can be closer than you think. Luckily, Mathilde knows how to make friends she can count on.
Follow Mathilde and her adventure, help her in difficult moments, and discover the fascinating world in which she lives.
