Description

See below for English description.

De magnifiques illustrations en bas-relief réalisées au moyen de pâte à modeler suivent les progrès d'un jeune veau depuis sa naissance au début du printemps, jusqu'à la fin de l'automne.

 

Colourful Plasticine bas-relief illustrations follow the growth of Buttercup the cow's new calf, beginning with his birth in early spring and moving through to late fall. The story is simple and clear, warm and gentle, and the pictures have a rich, almost touchable texture. Quel beau petit! is a perennial best-seller and an all-time classic. First published in 1984, was Barbara Reid's first Plasticine picture book, and has never been out of print.

Original title: The New Baby Calf
