Coup de Cœur

cache-lune

Eric Puybaret

Recommended by

Amy Pascucci
Timoléon est le nouveau Cache-Lune ! Ce métier consiste à cacher chaque nuit une partie de la lune avec un grand drap, formant ainsi ses croissants. Quand Timoléon perd la pilule qui lui permet de voler jusqu’à la lune, il demande de l’aide aux villageois pour trouver une solution. Cache-Lune est une histoire douce et poétique qui nous rappelle la valeur de l’amitié et de l'entraide.
