Conceived in April 2020 during the lockdown, The Story of George is a story by the author Claire Le Michel. In 38 episodes, Claire Le Michel imagines the lives and thoughts of animals living at Trivandrum Zoo in Kerala, India. It is inspired by the real lives of these animals, including George, a very old tiger born in the wild. For this story, Claire Le Michel is inspired by the advice and anecdotes of chief veterinary surgeon, Dr. Jacob Alexander. The book version of The Story of George will be published in October 2022 by Editions Le Verger des Hespérides and will be released in Kerala in December 2022 in the presence of the author. 

Before discovering this book about George, who sadly passed away last December, the Alliance Française de Trivandrum and the Compagnie Un soir ailleurs are pleased to present the online game “Finding George”.
Everyone can play! Young and old alike: in the countryside, in the city, at the sea or in the mountains. Bilingual in French and English, the game is accessible to all in France, in Kerala from now to the 22nd of October 2022 and ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD!
How to play?
  • Go to
  • Print a picture of George available on the website.
  • Cut out the shape to create a silhouette or a stencil.
  • Then, take George on a journey through different landscapes and take pictures of him there.
  • Send your creations to [email protected] between the 25th of July 2022, and the 22nd of October 2022. 
  • Don’t forget to mention where you spotted the tiger, your name and your Instagram or Facebook ID (optional). 
Every two weeks, new creations will be posted on Instagram (@cie.un.soir.ailleurs) with the hashtags #findgeorge and #trouvergeorges, Facebook and on the blog of la Compagnie.
Through your participation, the Company will create a collective work where George will move freely from country to country, from continent to continent. It is dedicated to peace and to freedom.  Be inspired by the theme – “Let’s forget borders, let’s move freely” for your photos. The best pictures will be rewarded.
Claire Le Michel will come to Kerala in December for more fun activities and readings!
