Description

Un jour, un garçon très contrarié entre dans une bibliothèque pour tenter de se calmer. Avec réticence, il s'empare d'un livre et se met à le lire. Le voilà absorbé par son histoire et emporté dans des contrées éloignées. Le bon petit livre devient alors le compagnon fidèle du petit garçon. Mais celui-ci le perd. Pourra-t-il retrouver son livre tant aimé?

Une histoire des plus loufoques, mais surtout des plus astucieuses, que les enfants voudront lire encore et encore.

 

While banished to a dusty study one day "to think things over", a boy pulls a book off a shelf and with great reluctance begins to read. As the afternoon passes, the story nabs him and carries him away. Before long, this good little book becomes his loyal companion, accompanying him everywhere ... until, one day, the book is lost. Will this bad little boy get back his good little book? Will the good little book survive on its own without a proper jacket?

A quirky, enchanting tale of literary love and loss - and love found again - that will win the heart of even the most reluctant reader.

Original title: The Good Little Book
