Description

See below for English description.

Luca se couche de mauvaise humeur et ferme les yeux à contrecoeur, quand tout-à-coup... Abrikidibri, abracadabra Luca, Luca, Lucadabra! Le voici devenu chevalier! Avec son épée-brosse-à-dents et sa cape de rideau blanc, il s'imagine en train de combattre le dragon dans son château fort. Malgré les interventions répétées de son père, Luca ne veut pas dormir. Il rêve les yeux bien ouverts. Il se prend pour un archéologue, puis s'imagine dans le désert... Il se transforme ensuite en capitaine de sous-marin et c'est ainsi qu'il livre son dernier combat avant de larguer les amarres... Une belle histoire, tout en rimes!
 

Luca's parents would like him to go to sleep, but how can he? Everytime he gets into bed something magical...happens! He transforms into a knight who must fight a dragon! And then a captain of a submarine who must fight his last battle! And then suddenly he's an archaeologist digging in the desert! So much to get done before he goes to bed--if only his parents would stop interrupting! This story perfectly captures the reluctance of one child to end his day and his wild imagination. The illustrations enhance the humour as they straddle the line
between fantasy and reality. A bedtime treasure!

Original Title: Night Flight
