Flo, a little drop of water, falls out of the sky and into the world for the first time. Unaware of the nature of her surroundings, or even her mere existence, she wonders who she is and where she’s supposed to go. As life pulls her in different directions, puts obstacles in her path, and guides her toward other living creatures, the answers to her questions continue to lack clarity. That is, until she finally sees the light and, suddenly, it all makes sense.

The Lost Drop is a wonderfully creative story that allows each reader, young and old, to gently discuss the cycles of life and our place within them.

Grégoire Laforce is a former military man who is slowly rediscovering his more childlike side. Through his work in the community, he discovered firsthand the importance of engaging men in preventing gender-based violence. The Lost Drop is his first children’s book, inspired by his many years of practicing tai chi. He and his family can often be caught having wild kitchen dance parties in their home in Gatineau, Canada.

Benjamin Flouw graduated from a CG animation school in France and moved to London to create backgrounds for Cartoon Network’s The Amazing World of Gumball. Today he works as a designer and illustrator for children’s books, films, and advertisements for Gallimard Jeunesse, the New York Times, Variety, and Reader’s Digest, among others. His influences run from mid-century illustrators such as Miroslav Šašek and Mary Blair to ‘90s low-poly video games. Flouw lives in Paris.
