«Le lion et l’oiseau» | Marianne Dubuc | Album, French Canada | 72pp | 19.8 x 24.8 cm
It is the autumn, the air is getting colder and birds are emigrating to warmer climates. Lion is working in his garden when one of them, hurt, suddenly falls at his feet. As he bandages him, the flock of birds has flown away and little bird feels cold and sad, separated from them. Lion takes him home. Through the winter, the two become inseparable friends. But what will happen as spring comes back and with it, the return of bird’s family?
