See below for English description.

Un jour, un garçon très contrarié entre dans une bibliothèque pour tenter de se calmer. Avec réticence, il s'empare d'un livre et se met à le lire. Le voilà absorbé par son histoire et emporté dans des contrées éloignées. Le bon petit livre devient alors le compagnon fidèle du petit garçon. Mais celui-ci le perd. Pourra-t-il retrouver son livre tant aimé?

Une histoire des plus loufoques, mais surtout des plus astucieuses, que les enfants voudront lire encore et encore…

While banished to a dusty study one day "to think things over", a boy pulls a book off a shelf and with great reluctance begins to read. As the afternoon passes, the story nabs him and carries him away. Before long, this good little book becomes his loyal companion, accompanying him everywhere ... until, one day, the book is lost. Will this bad little boy get back his good little book? Will the good little book survive on its own without a proper jacket? A quirky, enchanting tale of literary love and loss -- and love found again -- that will win the heart of even the most reluctant reader.

Original title: The Good Little Book

Review Quote*

« Un album aux jolis dessins surréalistes, qui donne envie de se plonger dans la beauté infinie des mots. » ~ Lurelu

« Les illustrations foisonnantes de couleurs chaudes d'Arbona donnent au texte de Maclear une belle vivacité, augmentant l'hommage fait à ces livres qui animent nos esprits. » ~ Revue Les libraires

"Cockeyed perspectives, vivid colours and comic, surreal scenes show how dynamic, how animated, the love for a favourite story can be. Funny and thoughtful." ~ The Toronto Star

"The message of the story is that books are meant to be enjoyed over and over again and Arbona's drawings are sure to keep you coming back for more." ~ Montreal Review of Books
