Les quatre saisons de Simon
Text and illustrations: Gilles Tibo
Toronto: Livres Toundra, 2006. 48 p.
Ages 4 to 7
Published in English under the title Simon Says: Seasons (Toronto: Tundra Books, 2006)
This book contains four stories by Gilles Tibo. From spring through to winter, we follow the adventures of Simon, a boy with a fertile imagination. He tries to help the flowers grow by attaching balloons to the emerging shoots. In summer, he wants to keep the sun in a box. In the fall, he races against the clouds and ensuing winter, and tries to count the number of snowflakes it takes to build a snowman.
The delightful illustrations convey the story at least as much as the brief texts, leading young readers into a garden of pleasure.
