THE FRIEND'S CLUB 2
Le Club des amis 2 - Sophie Guerrive - 18.2 x 25.2 cm - 56 pages - October 2021 - €14
"Mummy told me to beware of cars and bad guys… but not monsters!” When you’re in the Friends Club, you never say no to an adventure. So, when the gentle rain turns into a downpour, and their cave and the whole world are covered in water, Tulipe, Violette & Crocus bravely take on the floods... And even though they’re far from home, in the middle of winter, and worried about their mummies (who stayed behind, on the other side of the snowy mountains), they can always count on each other. Together, they learn how to make a den, fly, climb mountains, and occasionally glance back at their family home as it moves further away… in other words, grow up.
After Le Club des Amis, awarded the ‘Fauve Jeunesse’ in 2021 at the Festival d’Angoulême, Sophie Guerrive’s new book is full of inventiveness, suspense and emotion. A gem of a children’s book.
