But many other authors have found inspiration in la Vienne like Luc TURLAN, author of children's comics, or Isabelle SOULARD, author of books on Poitiers and its history.

Numerous works are available and retrace the History of Poitou and its illustrious characters such as the Fairy Melusine or, Eleanor of Aquitaine

Born from the imagination of Luc TURLAN, the adventures of Donkey Peluchon will not be missed to entertain the youngest and will allow you to discover the Vienne and New Aquitaine region through his stories.

Meet Peluchon and all his friends: Plumette the hen, Cabriole the goat or even Crapoto the pig.

Among more than 20 titles, we recommend: La Fée Mélusine, Cabriole La Biquette du Poitou, Crapoto et le Broyé du Poitou or even Le Secret des Macarons…
