Les contes de Youpi

by Philip Roy, illustrated by Andrea Torrey Balsara

tagged: adaptations
Description

Les contes de Youpi is the translation into French of the beloved children's book, Mouse Tales. The first volume in the "Happy the Pocket Mouse" series has been read to tens of thousands of students in Atlantic Canada and Ontario over the past five years, and has gathered a substantial following. Here, now, French speakers across Canada will be able to enjoy the story by Philip Roy and the wonderfully vibrant illustrations of Andrea Torrey Balsara. Readers of all ages will identify with Youpi's bedtime struggle after a long day, his request for a story to help him fall asleep, and his nighttime anxieties when he must come to grips with the wicked witch of Grimms' Hansel and Gretel, the Big Bad Wolf, and his own imagined "Three Bears." Readers will be won over by the insatiably curious and determined little mouse, and his kind and endlessly patient friend, Jean. Les contes de Youpi proves that best friends come in all sizes, and guarantees a giggle.

About the Authors
Philip Roy continues to travel back and forth between Nova Scotia and Ontario, keeping residence in both places. Whenever possible, he visits the places he writes about in the Submarine Outlaw series. From 1999 to 2001, he lived on the island of Saipan, which features in Ghosts of the Pacific. Recently, he travelled to India to research the fifth book in the series, Outlaw in India, and to South Africa for book six, Seas of South Africa. Book seven, Eco Warrior, will be set in Australia, which he has recently visited. Travelling makes for great adventure, Philip contends. The only thing better is writing about it and visiting schools to share the stories and research with young readers.
