Description

See below for English description.

Un jour, une araignée affamée est prise dans une rafale et se retrouve projetée

sur une musaraigne! L’araignée apprend que la musaraigne vient de perdre sa

maison à cause d’un tracteur, de sorte qu’il y a maintenant une musaraigne

sans maison, et une araignée sans repas. Quand l’araignée propose gentiment

d’aider la musaraigne à trouver une nouvelle maison, les deux amies finissent

par rencontrer d’autres animaux qui ont besoin d’aide. Ce duo de bestioles

saura-t-il s’unir pour s’entraider?

 

Les magnifiques illustrations de la célèbre illustratrice québécoise Geneviève

Côté donnent vie à cette histoire touchante sur la communauté, la compassion

et l’amitié.

 

When a hungry spider gets caught in a gust of wind, it gets blown right into

a shrew! The spider learns that the shrew has just lost its home to a tractor,

so now there’s a shrew without a home and a spider without food. The spider

kindly offers to help the shrew look for a new home, but they end up coming

across many other animals in need of help. Can this crew of critters band

together to help one another?

 

A touching story about community, compassion, and friendship is brought to life

by beautiful illustrations from celebrated Quebecois illustrator Geneviève Côté.
