Description

See below for English description.

Voilà l'histoire parfaite pour le lecteur récalcitrant.

Le garçon de cette histoire trouve mille et une excuses pour éviter de lire ce livre. Il ne le lira pas! Même s'il est suspendu au-dessus d'un précipice (avec des requins en bas) par le bout de l'orteil. Il ne le lira pas! Et rien ni personne ne peut y faire quoi que ce soit!

Il ne lira pas ce livre! À moins que quelqu'un qu'il aime bien le lise avec lui, bien entendu...

 

This is the story of how the ultimate reluctant reader became a book lover.

The little boy in Je ne lirai pas ce livre has a lot of excuses, because if there is one thing he doesn't want to do, it's read this book. He won't read it even if you hang him upside down by one toe, over a cliff, with sharks down below. And you know what? You. Can't. Make. Him.

In this book illustrated with wit and whimsy by Joy Ang, Cece Meng delivers once again with a pitch-perfect reluctant reader who is finally convinced to read the book if - and only if - someone he loves will read it with him.

Contributor notes

Cece Meng's est née à Walnut Creek, en Californie. Son travail à titre de bénévole dans un refuge pour sans-abris lui a permis de bien saisir l'importance de la communication en société. Cette expérience lui a aussi fait prendre conscience du rôle déterminant des adultes dans la vie des enfants. « Je dis à mes enfants que j'ai le meilleur travail au monde : je suis une rêveuse professionnelle. »

Joy Ang est une illustratrice qui a travaillé dans l'industrie de la bande dessinée et des jeux vidéo. Elle est l'une des éditrices et créatrices d'une anthologie de bandes dessinées intitulée The Anthology Project. Elle vit à Edmonton, en Alberta.

 

Cece Meng's thoughts on writing: "For me, it's about the music and the rhythms found in words. The joys of my childhood - music and poetry - wrapped up in the words of today. I love to honour the impulses of our spirited children."

Joy Ang has illustrated several picture books, among them Mustache Baby and Mustache Baby Meets His Match. She lives in Edmonton, Canada
