Philémon takes him to his uncle, Félicien; you'll remember that in the previous album, he used a magical telescope to shrink the boy; so he's the perfect helper.
(I love the puddle of tears on the table). His uncle's idea is to inflate a seashell until it's big enough to open a hole back to the islands:
Unfortunately they miss the island and arrive on the dot at the top of the island of I:
Which is inhabited solely by a king. (A reference to The Little Prince?)
The king lives in an owl-house:
Since they're in the wrong place, they use the owl's eye beams to cross the ocean:
Only to fall down and get rescued by a whale submarine:
Which gets attacked by... I can't even explain what they're attacked by:
Anyway, Philémon and Bartélémy are kidnapped and taken to the Hanging Castle:
(what is that thread hanging onto?)
After a few incidents, they snap the thread and the castle falls in the ocean and sinks:
And they return to Philémon's world. But because that's a depressing ending, there's still this:
Wandering in the forest, Philémon discovers a child puppet who fell from its nest. Yes. And then he returns it to its family:
In the nest-theatre!
