Description

See below for English description.

Ninon sait faire beaucoup de choses : nouer ses lacets, réciter l'alphabet à l'envers, et même aller toute seule chez son amie Susie. Mais elle ne sait pas dire non. Quand elle y parvient, elle est très surprise des conséquences, et le lecteur également.

Cette jolie histoire d'Heather Hartt-Sussman, accompagnée des dessins aussi drôles qu'originaux de Geneviève Côté, explore tendrement ce qu'est l'amitié et l'importance de se fier à son propre avis. Beaucoup d'enfants pourront s'identifier à Ninon lorsqu'elle apprend qu'on peut défendre son opinion sans pour autant perdre ses amis.

 

Ninon can do all sorts of things: tie her own shoelaces, recite the alphabet backwards, even walk to her friend Susie's house all by herself. But what Ninon can't do is say no. When she finally finds her voice, the consequences are not what she - or the reader - expects.

Heather Hartt-Sussman's charming story, complemented by the playful, quirky illustrations of artist Geneviève Côté, is a comforting exploration of friendship and the importance of trusting one's own judgment. Many children will root for Ninon as she learns that you can stand up for yourself and still be good friends.

Original title: Noni Says No
