"This is not just for kids. I have it on my coffee table. A unique concept and the illustrations are so beautiful.' - Ann Clark, Customer

This is my first children's book, which I illustrated, wrote, and self-funded and published. It is a French and English story about a boy whose wish to discover Québec comes true when he meets Disco, a black Labrador. The boy follows the Disco on a magical journey beginning in Parc National de la Jacques Cartier through the Quebec city and then to a sugar shack (Cabane à Sucre). This story emphasizes the unique and enchanting qualities of Quebec's landscape and culture, and how the French language is alive and is both a part and an expression of Quebecois culture. 

I wrote this book because, as a French teacher, I saw I need for novice to intermediate level French children's books that integrate culture. My love of Quebec began in college, when I did a summer program at the Université Laval and has to continue to grow as I take my students there biannually. They absolutely love it!

The cover of this book is glossy. It measures 9"X12." The size is both manageable to be handled by young hands, but big enough to be seen when read to students in the classroom. It includes a glossary of Québécois expressions and a proverb used in the book. The bilingual text is separated by fleur-de-lys icons and maple leaves that transform from natural to stylized.

This book is wonderful for my elementary French students. It has all of the stops that many of the middle school students see when they visit Québec on a school trip. I really enjoy sharing these colorful images with my students and teaching them about Québec.
