"Directly, or indirectly, Renard is at the origin of contemporary literature." —Jean-Paul Sartre A delightful variation on the long tradition of bestiary writing, Jules Renard's short verse and prose poems have captured the imagination of readers and artists since they were originally written in 1894, with Ravel famously setting five of them to music. Presented in a new version by acclaimed translator Richard Stokes and enriched by Lucinda Rogers's beautiful pen drawings, this sumptuously produced volume will captivate and enchant new generations of readers the world over.
Ariol Where s Petula
If you're from the neighborhood, you surely know ARIOL, the little blue donkey with round glasses. He's fulfilling his greatest dream today: being invited to Petula's, the young cow he's secretly in love with. But the obstacles are mounting! Petula's dad, a fearsome bull from the South, and Petula's big brother, a sixteen-year-old calf raised by his mother, do their best to run interference. Will Ariol make it to Petula's room, at the end of the hallway on the right, to play Thunder Horse and Princess Filly?
