Pleine lune — Camilla Pintonato — Hardcover book — 24.7 x 26.9 cm — 48 pages — April 2020 — CAN$22.95
It’s the night of the full moon. Little grey bunnies are busying themselves in the twilight. Racoons, foxes, partridges and mice, come quick over here! The moment has arrived. The sky is glittering with dozens of lanterns. It’s brilliant, beautiful and bright. And right there, in front of our eyes, the moon shines in a thousand lights!
All the animals in the forest are invited to gather and to witness an incredible spectacle that happens once every month. Is it one of nature’s works or do we have to thank the rabbits for it? It’s hard to say... But one thing is for sure: nobody wants to miss this magnificent event!
