HERE IS COLIN

 

Voici Colin - Christiane Duchesne & Gérard Dubois - 29 x 26.4 cm - 40 pages - October 2018 - USD21.95

Here is Colin is a new adaptation of an English nursery rhyme, This is the House that Jack Built. It is a cumulative tale that does not tell the story of Colin's house, or even of Colin who built the house, but instead shows how the house is indirectly linked to other things and people. The whole is highly rhythmical and highly funny. The repetitions and the wonderful illustrations of Gérard Dubois (winner of 4 Golden Medals of the Society of Illustrators) help the reader to follow the steps of the story.

"This is the house that Jack built.
This is the malt that lay in the house that Jack built.
This is the rat that ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built..."
