Description

 

See below for English description.

Dans un curieux royaume juché au sommet de grands arbres vit un petit chevalier qui aime les chats et les gâteaux au chocolat. Il craint ni la nuit ni les souris, mais il a terriblement peur de la pluie! Un jour, alors qu'un orage énorme s'abat sur le village, le petit chevalier qui s'était réfugié dans une forteresse, décide enfin d'affronter ses peurs.

 

In a curious kingdom built at the summit of a forest, there lived a small knight. He loved cats and chocolate cake. He wasn't scared of night or mice, but he was terribly afraid of rain! One day, an enormous storm passed through the village. The small knight ran to seek shelter in a castle. That castle was his home for a very, very long time. Until one day, he had to step out into the world and face his fears . . .

English title: The Little Knight Who Battled the Rain
