Welcome to Juliette Saumande’s website!
Juliette is a writer and translator of children’s books, with over 20 stories published in her native France. For unfathomable reasons, she lives in Dublin where she keeps very busy by writing in French and in English, doing work for Children’s Books Ireland and expanding on her fine collection of raincoats.
Disaster David is a fun story, freely inspired from the antics of one of Armenia’s best-loved hero. Illustrations are by amazing Julie Grugeaux/de Terssac; published by Zangak. More here.
Chop-Chop, Mad Cap! is a fun-silly-crazy story involving disappearing butchers, killer cats, geniuses, heroes and tap-dancing. It is illustrated by super Sadie Cramer, published by Little Island and can be found in lots of good places. More info.
Several of her picturebooks have been translated into English and other languages such as In Search of Happiness (illustrated by Eric Puybaret) and an adaptation of Oliver Twist (illustrated by Daniela Volpari).
Juliette has also written a book app in English called SOS Dinos in Distress (illustrated by Claire Chavenaud, more here).
