There was a time when Madame Pauline used to love to read, when she threw herself wholeheartedly into gardens of words where she wandered about amongst treasures, goddesses, and dinosaurs. But time passed, and now Madame Pauline doesn't feel like wandering on her own anymore. What's the point in picking a flower if there's no one to smell it with? That's forgetting Monsieur Jardinier, gardener of words and his islands filled with knights, chocolates, and pyjamas. Who's going to cross the ocean to share his treasures? Will the little seed of hope, squished into Madame Pauline's coat, be able to bloom again? A story to celebrate the 10th anniversary of organisati on Lire et faire lire Acadie.
