Description

 

See below for English description.

Vincent est une souris qui porte sa maison sur son dos. Un jour, il repère une colline ordinaire avec un chemin fréquenté. Il décide donc de poser sa maison et de s’y installer. Très rapidement, les passants s’arrêtent, et Vincent leur offre un endroit où se reposer, car après tout, la maison de Vincent est beaucoup plus grande qu’elle n’en a l’air. Mais la généreuse souris aura-telle assez d’espace pour aider tous les animaux qu’elle croise?

L’illustratrice à succès Isabelle Arsenault s’est jointe à Jonathan Stutzman, auteur de Lama détruit le monde, pour offrir aux enfants ce magnifique album illustré sur la générosité et la tolérance.

 

Vincent is a mouse who carries a house on his back. One day, he spots an ordinary hill with a well-traveled path, and he decides to take off his house and settle in. Soon enough, travelers start to come across his house, and Vincent offers them a place to rest. Will this generous mouse have enough room to help all the animals he encounters?

Celebrated illustrator Isabelle Arsenault joins Jonathan Stutzman, author of Lama détruit le monde, to bring kids a stunning die-cut picture book about generosity and tolerance.
