PARSLEY

Cerfeuil  - Ludwig Bemelmans - €14 - 26 x 32.3 cm - 48 pages – Hardback - January 2019


In this 1955 picture book, Ludwig Bemelmans brought us the tale of how a gnarled pine tree helped the animals who lived nearby. Parsley the deer and his family are already in debt to the tree for having sheltered them. But they are even further benefited when a branch of the tree catches the binoculars of an unfortunate hunter – and artfully dangles them in a position that allows the animals to use them to spy future marauders of the human sort.
