Salvador - Richard Marnier & Julia Wauters - 21.6 x 21.6 cm - 48 pages - October 2021 - €19.90
Don Carlos is an avid musician and a violinist in a famous quartet. Camille is a beautiful and renowned singer. Together, they find an odd-looking egg at a flea market. When it hatches, a sort of chick comes out… with lots of teeth. They call it Salvador. The little dinosaur becomes their baby, and they love, nurture and cherish him. But the other children don’t want to play with him. So, he takes refuge in music and becomes a piano prodigy at an early age.
Salvador is a magnificent fable by Richard Marnier about differences, music and friendship, in which a little dragon becomes a great pianist. Julia Wauters’ illustrations add a striking strength and depth to this sensitive (but funny) text. A beautiful picture book!
