A phenomenal worldwide success! A universal hero!

A young chi ld’s best friend Why would a young boy without a hair on his head be such a hit with children? Perhaps it’s because Caillou represents all children. He doesn't have curly blond hair, a carrot top, brown hair, glasses, or ethnic features. In an age where heroes are animals, marionettes, or fantasy creatures, Caillou is one of the rare human characters. Perhaps it’s because Caillou knows how to put into words the emotions young children are experiencing.

More than 10 million Caillou books have been sold worldwide. Today, children around the world are growing up with Caillou! Our little hero travels easily from country to country, charming parents everywhere with his striking resemblance to their own children.
