Description

Pierre and Paul are back for another imaginative bilingual adventure
Pierre and Paul are back for another adventure! Pierre speaks French and Paul speaks English, but that doesn’t stop them from being friends and exploring together. Today is garbage day, so the duo sets out to find hidden treasures in the trash.
Treasure map in hand, they encounter poisonous swamps, dark forests, a dragon, and even a tsunami! (Or maybe just a garbage truck driving through a puddle). When the tsunami sweeps away their treasure map, they think all is lost—until they finally find a treasure lying out in plain sight.
Told half in French and half in English, this second book in the Pierre & Paul series uses simple phrases and clues in the illustrations to make the story accessible to readers in both languages. Full of imagination and playful illustrations, this vocabulary-learning tool is an engaging story of friendship.

Editorial Reviews

"Reminds young readers of the powers of the imagination and the gems in their own backyard."

— The Ormsby Review

"The blend of English and French in the text is a clever way to support bilingualism... Educational content made entertaining."

— Kirkus Reviews

"This is a stunningly executed story ... Colorful and heartwarming, this story is a delightful addition to bilingual collections for young elementary school-aged readers with an interest in fantasy and imaginative adventures."

— Children’s Literature

"This is one of those terrific adventures that gets better with every reading ... Highly recommended."

— School Library Journal

"Wondrous. Through the book’s repetition, simple words, and expressive illustrations, children speaking either language will easily grasp the wonder of the story. This is a book tailor-made for reading aloud, where even the adult reader does not need to be fluent in both languages. In fact, it would make an ideal first day read in a French Immersion classroom."

— Canadian Review of Materials
