Description

Ninon essaie toujours d'être gentille avec les autres et de bien faire. Lorsque ses amis d'école se moquent d'Hector, Ninon se fige. Elle est incapable de dire quoi que ce soit. Mais elle se rend compte que son comportement blesse Hector. Saura-t-elle trouver le courage de s'exprimer et d'affronter l'intimidation?

 

Noni always does her best to be kind to others and to do the right thing when faced with adversity. But when her school friends make fun of Hector, she freezes. She cannot utter a single word. Noni realizes that their behaviour is hurtful and wrong, but she cannot bring herself to take a stand. As her friends continue to tease Hector, something bubbles up inside of Noni. Will she be able to speak up?

A relatable tale on anti-bullying that is beautifully accompanied by Geneviève Côté's soft illustrations.

Original title: Noni Speaks Up
