Meet the author

Karim Maaloul was born in the southern suburbs of Tunis. He spent his childhood surrounded by sheep blocking the streets, and goat thieving flowers from gardens. Local wildlife quickly became an inexhaustible source of inspiration.

Later, he studied illustration and comics in Brussels. After two publications: Elephant's Memory (published by Les éditions du Pépin) and The story of the day and night (published by Lo Pais d'enfance), he turned to the enigmatic world of computers and the Internet.

In 2009, he became one of the co-founders of Epic, a Belgian creative agency specializing in the creation of digital content and where he is now in charge of design and flash development.

For Babel, he uses the various skills acquired throughout his career. He creates a fascinating and educational story which will entertain the younger children and captivate the older.

Jacques Mercier

" This is a story imagined for the ‘new children’, those who are born with the new technologies, with the Internet, the iPad. A wonder of colors, texts, characters… With a timeless aspect since Babel is based on the criteria of a tale of yesteryear, with enough poetry and values, that always speaks to the soul of little children! It is a success! (And I am proud to have been asked to correct the French text!) Good luck, Jacques Mercier. "
