Mandie Davies / Illus. Pete Williamson
L'Autre Chemin pour la Ville / The Other Way into Town is a dual-language story with the full text in both English and French.
Daddy is taking India Mouse and Willow Star into town to buy their Christmas shopping. Faced with the very steep hill to climb, India Mouse asks if they can go the other way into town - pointing in the other direction. Daddy decides that this is possible - if they travel all around the world the other way! On their journey they visit some magical places, meet different people and collect some unusual gifts. A story that shows that big adventures spring from little decisions!
The centre pages feature a world map style spread showing their journey, with places labelled in both English and French.
L'Autre Chemin pour la Ville / The Other Way into Town is a bilingual French and English story book, with the full text in both languages. It would be equally suitable for young English children to learn French, or for young French children to learn English.
As with all Les Puces books, open it one way and it's French - then FLIP IT OVER and open it the other way and it's in English. This unique format keeps the two languages separate.
Suggested age range: 3 - 10 years
