Agen: Poulpo, an ecological octopus born in Capbreton in the spirit of Agenaise Ninon Biasiolo
Through the story of Poulp, invite children to discover the importance of cleaning the ocean. This is a nice project by Ninon Biasiolo with his children’s book “Poulpo l’écolo”, self-published.
From creating clothes sold at the Capbreton markets to publishing children’s books. Ninon Biasiolo, originally from Lot-et-Garonne, is full of great ideas. The creator of the Poco Loco brand, Poco Loca, a young woman tenderly hands over her first children’s book, “Poulpo l’écolo”.
“I sell my creations in the markets of Capbreton and I had T-shirts with a small octopus on them,” begins the young Lot-et-Garonne. “The kids’ sizes weren’t selling well so I came up with the idea of telling Poulp’s story and eventually the parents bought the T-shirts. And I thought, why not write a book?” Thus was born Poulpo, a small octopus who tells how he became aware of pollution in the ocean and what made him an “eco-octopus”!
Thus begins the Ninon creative process, which always follows the same common thread. As with her brand, she intends to speak about very different but important social issues that concern us all. Homosexuality, feminism, racism, love or even ecology. “The story came to me based on what I saw. I picked them up a few times on the beaches of Capbreton and I was quite appalled,” she says. “For the book, I said to myself, what if for once the animals are the ones who lead by example because obviously we can’t do that between us?” That’s how the Poulpo adventure was born, for easy awareness raising.
Written, drawn and edited by Ninon
From start to finish, Ninon took care of everything. “Creation went very quickly. When the story was well laid out, it probably took me two months at most,” he explains. “I’m lucky that I studied graphic design at the ECV school in Bordeaux and that I had an art preparatory course for a year, so that made modeling a lot easier.”
She published the book herself, and it was printed by the same printer that prints the designs on the Poco Loco Poco Loca coins. And he is already on his way to becoming the first in a small series. Nina’s mind is already bursting with ideas! “I already have two new stories in mind,” rejoices the very young author, “and not only about ecology, I would like to approach racism, sexism… But always gently and lead to a collection of six booklets.” While you wait for the adventures of these new little heroes, you can get the book “Poulpo l’écolo”, at a price of 10 euros, on the Poco Loco Poco Loca website or at the Greenchef restaurant, at 78 boulevard Carnot in Agen.
