Nous les hommes

(We men) Book not yet available in English


We men are no sissies! We like to get together to celebrate our favourite football team’s latest win and all the stuff that makes us men… No way are we doing the ironing, housework, or cooking – those chores are women’s work. Except when it’s the women’s turn to get together and we need to look after the children, mealtimes, the housework, and all the chores that make us… parents.


A witty picture book on gender roles with all of Christian Voltz’s customary rebellious sense of mischief. It pokes fun at macho clichés and explains that housework and going out to have fun with friends are for everyone. The book was awarded the Citizenship Prize in 2012.
