Chaud, chaud, le pôle Nord!

Marie-Andrée Boucher Mativat loves travelling and Inuit culture. In this new adventure of Émile Noël, readers are asked to become aware of the effects that their actions have upon the environment. Both children and their parents will enjoy this book; the narrative is simple and funny and there is a short glossary at the end of the book explaining the more difficult words or those in other languages. Finally, while there are only a few illustrations by Michel Rouleau, they have a humorous touch and add to the enjoyment of the book.
