Description

See below for English description.

Sumac Loteau est la gardienne des traditions de sa famille. Elle est toujours en état d'alerte afin de s'assurer qu'aucune des célébrations familiales ne soit oubliée. Mais cet hiver, ses plans tombent à l'eau lorsqu'un visiteur brésilien reste plus longtemps que prévu… Un de ses pères et son frère préféré ne peuvent la rejoindre, car une terrible tempête empêche tous les avions de décoller. Puis une panne d'électricité plonge la ville entière dans le noir… Sumac saura-t-elle conserver son esprit des fêtes même si rien ne fonctionne comme elle l'avait prévu?

 

Sumac Lottery is the keeper of her family's traditions -- from Pow Wow to Holi, Carnival to Hogmanay, Sumac's on guard to make sure that no Lottery celebration gets forgotten. But this winter all Sumac's seasonal plans go awry when a Brazilian visitor overstays his welcome. A terrible ice storm grounds all flights, so one of her dads and her favourite brother can't make it home from India. And then the power starts going out across the city... Can Sumac hang on to the spirit of the season, even if nothing is going like a Lottery holiday should?

Praise for Les Loteau plus un

"[Donoghue's] fans will recognize not only her gift for representing a child's point of view, but also her knack for showing how a family, no matter how small or large, develops its own language, even its own culture." — New York Times

"A big, boisterous book with a lot of heart that speaks to the possibility and necessity of seeing diversity in stories. Highly Recommended." — CM Magazine
