Description

 

See below for English description.

L’auteure adorée des enfants Elise Gravel pose l’éternelle question : Qui a fait tout ce désordre? Quand leur papa demande qui a laissé traîner des chaussettes partout, Nico et sa soeur répondent tous les deux : « Pas moi! » Leur père est sûr qu’ils ne disent pas la vérité, jusqu’à ce que ceux-ci lui présentent Pas Moi, qui accuse Pas Vrai, qui dévoile le vrai coupable : Pas Juste. Les monstres, qui personnifient les réponses typiques des enfants, permettent à l’auteure d’aborder brillamment et avec humour le fait de blâmer les autres et d’inventer des excuses. Les parents et les éducateurs vont adorer cette histoire dans laquelle ils se reconnaîtront autant que les enfants.

 

From beloved children’s author Elise Gravel comes an ode to the perpetual question: Who made this mess? When their dad asks who left socks laying all over the place, Nico and his sister insist that it was “Not Me.” Disbelievingly, their dad is sure they are not telling the truth, until he is introduced to Not Me, who in turn accuses Not True, who exposes the real sock bandit: Not Fair. Monsters personifying a child’s typical responses brilliantly addresses blaming others and excuse-making by focusing on the humour of the situation. Parents and caregivers will appreciate this highly relatable book just as much as children.
