Description

See below for English description.

Dans cette charmante berceuse, un parent peint le tableau d'une belle nuit nordique pour son enfant endormi, décrivant la beauté des flocons de neige, le scintillement des étoiles, la danse des cristaux de givre sur la fenêtre... Ce poème lyrique de Jean E. Pendziwol décrivant la beauté des nuits nordiques est une façon magnifique de la partager avec son enfant. Les illustrations extraordinaires d'Isabelle Arsenault rendent hommage à ce magnifique poème.

In this exquisite lullaby, a parent paints a picture of a northern winter night for their sleeping child, describing the beauty of a snowfall, the twinkling stars, the etchings of frost on the window pane... Jean E. Pendziwol's lyrical poem reflects a deep appreciation of a northern winter night, a desire to share it with her sleeping child and the love that underlies that wish.

Original Title: Once Upon a Northern Night

Editorial Review

Dans les médias

«[Cette] histoire réconfortante, à lire avant de s'endormir, emmène les lecteurs à travers un paysage hivernal alors que les animaux nocturnes découvrent un monde vêtu de blanc. [...] Tout en employant différents matériaux, Isabelle Arsenault (Virginia Wolf) utilise les couleurs judicieusement. [...] Alors que la nuit avance, elle utilise des bleus plus profonds et du vert pour présenter un lac gelé, un ciel étoilé et les magnifiques aurores boréales [...]. Une ode révérencieuse à la magie et au caractère merveilleux d'une belle nuit d'hiver.» ~ Publishers Weekly, juin 2013

 

REVIEWS

"[A] comforting bedtime read [...] taking readers through a wintry landscape as nocturnal animals explore a world covered in white. [. . .] Working in mixed media, Arsenault (Virginia Wolf ), however, is judicious in her use of color. [...] As the night wears on, she uses deeper blues and greens to visualize a frozen lake, starry sky, and the surprise of the northern lights [...]. A reverent ode to the magic and wonder of an icy winter night." ~ Publishers Weekly, June 2013.
