Bûchette and the Magic Tree

I'm so thrilled to announce the imminent arrival of my illustrated musical tale for children aged 5 to 8, inspired by the unique and wonderful bond between me and my grandmother.

Bûchette welcomes her granddaughter for the holydays. Together, they find a chestnut with a tiny shoot. They plant it, and the fruit grows into a magnificent chestnut tree that forms a deep and mysterious bond with the child. One day, a man in a horrible hat threatens to cut down the tree… Bûchette calls on her friends, the damsels, to come to the rescue!

A story to read, listen to and sing
In a world where we refuse to grow old, where our elders are often neglected and lonely, I wanted to celebrate old age by making my heroine a grandmother, in the image of my own, so full of life and resources.
An invitation to dream and, perhaps, to reconsider what’s essential. And, who knows, the start of a series…
