Description

 

See below for English description.

Emma cherche à remplacer son animal favori. Elle essaie d’adopter d’autres animaux. Elle ramène un orignal à la maison, mais il est trop silencieux. Elle trouve un phoque, mais il glisse entre ses bras et elle ne peut pas lui faire de câlins. Dans sa quête d’un nouveau meilleur ami, Emma rencontre Frank, un garçon un peu comme elle. Va-t-elle réaliser qu’ils n’ont pas besoin d’avoir exactement les mêmes goûts pour devenir amis? Cette histoire d’amitié célèbre l’ampleur des mondes imaginaires créés par les enfants et la joie de trouver le compagnon idéal.

 

When Emma loses Dino, her beloved stuffed animal, she must look for a replacement pet. To Emma, Dino was perfect. He hid her broccoli for her and liked the same things as Emma. She begins to consider other pets.Emma brings home a moose, but he is too quiet. She finds a seal, but he is too slippery for hugs. Nobody is just-right like Dino. In her search for a new best friend, Emma meets Frank, a boy who is a bit like her but also different. Will Emma realize that they don’t need to be perfectly matched to get along? This story of friendship celebrates childrens’ deep and expansive imaginary worlds and the wonder of finding companionship. Original title: A Friend Instead
