In addition to his career as a journalist and founder of the Fooding guide, Alexandre Cammas is the father of Jules and Léopoldine, whom he used to entertain regularly with already famous as well as with improvised stories. He invented the story of the melting doll as he was accompanying his daughter of seven to school. Ten years later, the story has been re-told to and approved by 6 year old Giselle, the latest addition to the Cammas family, and has subsequently been turned into an illustrated children’s book – a book preferably to be read with dry hands!
