Description

See below for English description.

Théo et Matéo sont de vrais jumeaux qui s'imitent l'un l'autre. Ils sont en constante rivalité et ne veulent jamais s'occuper de leur petit frère Léo. Quand Théo ouvre son Univerre de la limonade et Matéo son Super Univerre de la limonade, ils refusent d'embaucher Léo sous prétexte qu'il ne serait pas à la hauteur. Léo accepte des petits boulots dans son quartier tandis que la concurrence entre les stands de limonade de Théo et de Matéo s'intensifie et prend des proportions démesurées.

Un jour, Léo ouvre un stand tout simple. Il a beaucoup appris en observant les bévues de ses frères et leur donne une bonne leçon!

 

Théo and Matéo are identical twins who do identical things. But their constant striving to outdo each other means their little brother, Léo, is always left out. When Théo's Lemonade Universe and Matéo's Lemonade Multiverse open for business, there's no role for Léo. He does odd jobs around the neighborhood while Théo and Matéo's competition spirals into overdrive and their lemonade stands get increasingly, outrageously out of hand.

But then Léo takes a stand with his own business venture—a simple model based on his observations of what not to do—and gives the twins a run for their money. Illustrated with lively cartoon-style art highlighting the hilarious one-upmanship, this is a spirited underdog story about siblings and strategic thinking.

Original title: Liam Takes a Stand
