I have actually first heard of this book on a children’s video series called Weston Woods and I enjoyed it back then and I enjoy it now! “The Beast of Monsieur Racine” is a children’s book by Tomi Ungerer, which is about how a retired tax collector named Monsieur Racine meets up with a strange beast Leggi tutto
This is an incredibly bizarre tale. I read about it in the book Reading Magic: Why Reading Aloud to Our Children Will Change Their Lives Forever by Mem Fox and when she said that the book inspired her daughter to learn more about France, I was intrigued. The story is entertaining, but very odd. The

Una història aparentment convencional d’un home solitari que es fa amic de la bèstia que li roba les peres del jardí, Però Ungerer no té fre. Les escenes de multituds tumultuoses són esborrajadament divertides. Una petita obra mestra.
