Description

 

See below for English description.

André adore le théâtre. Il se joint donc à une troupe et s'inscrit à toutes les activités qui pourraient l'aider à améliorer sa performance. Quand il décide aussi de prendre des cours de cornemuse, d'espagnol, de tennis et de cinéma français, c'est la folie furieuse et André ne sait plus où donner de la tête! Il ne dort plus et n'a plus de temps pour son amie Edie. Que fera André pour retrouver l'équilibre dans sa vie?

 

Andrew loves putting on plays so he decides to join the drama club at school. Determined to make his performance the best it can be, he joins the debate club to practice his public speaking. He signs up for dance and karate to help with his coordination. Then he's asked to play for the tennis team and edit the school newspaper. Before long he's learning to play the bagpipes, attending Spanish classes and joining the French film club. Suddenly Andrew doesn't have time for anything or anyone else, not even his best friend Edie. And he definitely doesn't have time to sleep. Will Andrew figure out how to balance all his favorite activities and his best friend at the same time? A hilarious, over-the-top look at a common issue that many kids face today.

Original title: Over-Scheduled Andrew

Editorial Reviews

 

DANS LES MÉDIAS : Quel génie!

« Sans jamais verser dans le didactisme, Ashley Spires réussit ici le tour de force d’aborder avec humour et sans prêchi-prêcha les thèmes de la patience, de la persévérance et de la résilience. » — Campagne pour la lecture
