Alexandre cherche la lune

Pourtau, Corine; Blanc, M.

Recommended by

Ingrid Marquardt
Quand son père oublie ses lunettes à la maison, la maman d’Alexandre dit qu’il est dans la lune. Mais, elle est où, la lune? Alexandre commence à la chercher le matin. Pendant toute la journée, il la cherche (même quand sa soeur se moque un peu de lui). Est-ce-qu’il peut visiter la lune comme son papa ?
