Russell the Sheep has a problem. Long after the rest of
the flock has fallen asleep at the end of another day,
Russell is lying on his back in his long striped nightcap,
wide-eyed and wide-awake.
He tries pulling his cap over his eyes to make it really
dark, taking off his wool in case he's too hot, and pulling
up an indignant frog for a pillow. He tries finding a better
place to sleep, but the trunk of a rusty car is too cramped,
a bat-filled hollow tree too creepy, a branch too crowded

with owls. Then he has a brilliant idea: he'll try counting
things!
First he counts his feet, but after getting to four he's still
not tired. He counts the stars, all six hundred million
billion and ten - twice! But he is still wide awake. He
thinks very hard, and finally it comes to him: he should
be counting sheep.
One by one he counts the other sleeping sheep but comes
to the last of them still awake, until he remembers
himself. Just as the others are waking up to start a new
day, Russell finally, deservedly, falls to sleep.

This album is rich in text and ideas. Created in two parts.
In the first part Ming looks at what his life could have
been if he had been born...the queen of England, or an
emperor.... In the second part, Ming looks at his simple
peasant life. The album asks if happiness is a measure of
power, fame, wealth, the ability to dominate or is it a
measure of simpler things like friends and family.

At the restaurant, M. Grimaud, the cat, is celebrating his
promotion. He orders a live mouse, a special dish for a
special occasion. The mouse arrives well presented.
Lying down on a piece of bread, the mouse seems
perfectly at peace with his fate. Yet, not before
suggesting to the diner, that such a fare requires a touch
of salt, a meal time prayer, or perhaps a glass of wine.
The dialogue is spicy and refined. This tragic situation
becomes comical. The illustrations are sober and
realistic. An album of suspense and drama, the ending is
perfectly suited to this tale of the extreme politeness.
A cat and mouse game, where the cat becomes the victim
rather than the mouse. Delicious.
A beautifully illustrated poem about a dunce. A lazy,
good for nothing student is referred to as a dunce.
Jacques Prévert shows us another point of view, more
like a free thinking spirit trapped in the classroom
environment.
A good follow up book would be l’encyclopédie des
cancres by Gallimard which features men and women
once labelled as a dunce who changed the face of
literature, science etc...
After school, a young boy talks to his friends about the
latest soccer game, when he is suddenly stumped and
unable to finish his sentence because he forgot the
word…. He immediately fixes his gaze on a strange man
holding a bag. Intrigued he follows him. The stranger
stops to listen to other people’s conversations grabs
words out of the air and hides them in a bag. The young
man follows him home. Peering through the window, the
young boy sees the man empty the bag in a suitcase.
Words are escaping. The old man catches the word the
boy was missing earlier and glues it in a yellow book.
The old man sees the boy and invites him. He explains
that he is a poet and poets steal words. They play with
them until they fit just perfectly with other words.
Magic is here! A circus show of the likes you have never
seen before. Demonstrations of agility, strength and
beauty mixed with imagination, you will be transfixed by
this album. Each word, each illustration is a blend of
poetry, humour, and the surreal. The imaginary circus is
the most intense circus of all!

By the forest, mister Berlu, a retired sorcerer, lives
quietly with his cat, Poison. Long ago he closed his
blinds and disconnected the phone. He watches TV and
eats cookies all day. One day during one of his many
naps, he is awakened by a strange, persistent noise.
Where could this horrible noise come from?
Opening his window he sees that his neighbor’s house
has been renovated and a woman lives there. A woman
who sings all the time.
Angry, he makes a troublesome cake that will rid him of
this pest. When he goes to deliver the cake, he quickly
becomes enamoured with the beauty of it all and falls in
love.
The association of Mother’s Bridge of Love received a
wonderful text from an anonymous adoptive mother.
This organisation maintains a link between Asia and the
Occident helping adoptive families discover the cultural
heritage of their children. The adapted text by Carole
Tremblay is full of sensitivity: simple touching words
create a parallel between the mothers. The child will
know he was loved twice rather than once. The
illustrations admirably complete the album.
For many days now, Crocodile cannot stand still.
Sometimes he is cold, sometimes he is hot, sometimes he
is blue, sometimes he is so happy he could kiss everyone.
It is clear Crocodile is in love. But often,very often,
when we are in love there are small problems...
Crocodile is trying to get the attention of Miss Girafe but
no matter how hard he tries he is not successful. Until....

Camille remembers fondly the days she spent with her
grandmother. However, one day grandmother does not
recognize her. It is Camille’s turn to take care of her
grand-mother. She tells her stories, shows her pictures,
and gives her big kisses. Grand-mother now needs her.
This album is sensitive, informative and takes away the
stigma of mental illness that exist. It is also a form of
reassurance that a child’s grand-mother is not nuts but
has a common disease.
Colin is small, even for a mouse. His mother refuses to
let him play outside with his brothers and sisters unless
he is wrapped in a big fluffy ball of cotton wool. Instead
of keeping him safe, the cotton wool attracts the attention
of every fierce creature imaginable — little boys, ducks,
even foxes!
After a day of being flung, pecked and chased, Colin
returns home without his cotton wool, but feeling much
BIGGER — and ready to tell his mother that he can look
after himself
La brouille is the story of two rabbits, one brown and
one grey. They got along great but like in any
relationship good feelings don’t always last forever.
Each day a new fight emerges. A hungry fox sees these
two rabbits fight and decides either of them would likely
make a very good meal. Seizing the opportunity he dives
but both rabbits escape because they cooperated.

cut out for life without Mrs. LaRue and his creature
comforts. Finally, he runs away only to find himself back in
Snort City -- just in time to save Mrs. LaRue''s life.
Teague is at the top of his fetching form in this madcap

visuals, the former in color and the latter in black and
white.
Good book for point of view, letter and newspaper writing

A classic. Two friends, one adventurous the other shy, live
together. One goes off to find adventure and the other stays
at home to live adventures of his own. We follow a week
in each of their lives. The more adventurous one returns
home to retell his close call with a hunter and the timid one
recounts his week of enjoying butterfly’s and fixing the
home. Both appreciate each other’s tales. Off the
adventurous one goes to relive another adventure, however,
remembering fondly the adventures told by the more timid
one.
Excellent presentation, we need not be the same to
appreciate each other. That each person has something to
contribute and neither being shy or adventurous is better or
worse.

A story about a trapper’s survival in the great north. Also
available in movie format, it teaches us a lot about the great
north and gives us an idea of the harshness, and beauty of
our country. A beautiful story highlights the delicate
balance between man, nature and animals. A chapter text,
that reads extremely well with little language difficulties.
Passé simple is used by the narrator but the conversations
are in present tense. I found the use of passé simple in this
text not to be a hindrance to the understanding of the text
nor the story. A man who loves living simply with nature,
the trapper leaves his last house to build another further
north away from human encroachment. There with his
Indian wife, they build a new home. He continues his
simple life of trapper, and recounts his near encounter with
death.
At the end is a section which tells us more about the life of
a trapper.
