After the huge success of Sous mon lit [Under my bed] in 2013 and Sous ma roche [Under my rock] in 2015, Acadian duo of creators Chantal Duguay Mallet and Danica Brine are back with Sous mon arbre [Under my tree] ! On the menu : short sentences, rhymes and a rich vocabulary written by a seasoned teacher, and funny pictures drawn by a young local artist in high demand here and abroad. Robins, swallows, sparrows, and chickadees... Birds are frolicking on the grass, but in the tree, a cat is watching. Will their songs sing its vigilance to sleep?
About the author
Rumour has it Chantal Duguay Mallet, an Acadian peninsula native, is an unparalleled teacher. Need proof — Several prizes of excellency from the New-Brunswick Ministry of Education, from the New-Brunswick Association of French language teachers and a nation-wide award for primary teaching. There is a whisper backstage that she's also a woman of theatre. And in-between the leaves, the wind blows that Sous mon arbre [Under my tree] is her third book published with Bouton d'or Acadie !
