Description

Au moment d'aller se coucher, une enfant pose des questions brûlantes à son père. Pourquoi l'océan est-il bleu? Qu'est-ce que la pluie? Qu'est-ce qui est arrivé aux dinosaures? Les jeunes lecteurs seront fascinés par les réponses créatives du papa tandis que les adultes ne pourront s'empêcher de sourire.

Cet album est parfait pour l'heure du dodo et idéal pour les esprits curieux qui cherchent des réponses à leurs questions existentielles. Les sublimes illustrations d'Isabelle Arsenault enchanteront parents et enfants.

 

Before falling asleep, a child asks her father burning existential questions. Why is the ocean blue? What is rain? What happened to the dinosaurs? Young readers will be enthralled by the father's imaginative answers and parents will knowingly smile as he slowly progresses into his daughter's room to ponder these all-important queries. Isabelle Arsenault's jaw-dropping illustrations cast an enchanting spell as readers get lost admiring the magnificent details in her work.

Curious minds are rewarded with curious answers in this fantastical bedtime book for dreamers who are always looking for more than the answer "just because!"
