See below for English description. Tout au long des pages de ce magnifique livre sans texte, le lecteur suit un petit garçon qui se laisse guider par son imagination. Ce nouveau classique du créateur de l'album illustré Excusez-moi! contient également des instructions pour que les enfants construisent leur propre bateau. Un jeune garçon partage une aventure au fil de l'eau avec un bateau qu'il a fabriqué avec du papier journal. Il danse sous une pluie torrentielle et joue dans les flaques en compagnie de son nouvel ami. Mais soudain, le petit garçon lâche prise et son bateau est emporté par le courant! Commence alors une folle poursuite pour récupérer le cher bateau. Quand la pluie s'arrête enfin, c'est le début d'une nouvelle aventure. L'histoire de Daniel Miyares paraît simple, mais elle est enrichie d'une profondeur et d'une texture qui transcendent les mots. A boy's small paper boat-and his large imagination-fill the pages of this wordless picture book, a modern-day classic from the creator of Excusez-moi! that includes endpaper instructions for building a boat of your own. A little boy takes a boat made of newspaper out for a rainy-day adventure. The boy and his boat dance in the downpour and play in the puddles, but when the boy sends his boat floating down a gutter stream, it quickly gets away from him. So of course the little boy goes on the hunt for his beloved boat-and when the rain lets up, he finds himself on a new adventure altogether. This seemingly simply story from Daniel Miyares is enriched with incredible depth and texture that transcend words. Original title: Float

From the author-illustrator of Pardon Me! and Float comes a funny and fun picture book about a little bug who proves that even the small can be mighty. When a power-hungry grasshopper king wants a throne to loom over his bug subjects, he summons each of them to “bring me a rock!” One by one, the bugs bring him the biggest rocks they can carry, but one little bug can contribute only a very small pebble. The grasshopper king shuns the little bug. But when his throne is in danger of tipping, that little bug might be the only one who can save him. With beautiful, bold illustrations and a folk-tale sensibility, Bring Me a Rock! is a classic underdog tale with a humorous twist.

A little bird just wants some peace and quiet—but he’s about to get a whole lot more than he bargained for in this clever picture book debut, in the tradition of Jon Klassen’s I Want My Hat Back. It’s a beautiful, sunny day in the swamp when a little yellow bird settles down on a rock—only to be interrupted as first a heron, then a frog, then a turtle ask to sit on the rock with him. As each animal says “pardon me,” the little bird’s replies get grumpier: “I suppose I can’t stop you.” “It’s already crowded, don’t you think?” “Sure, the entire swamp’s here already. Why shouldn’t you be, too?” When a fox comes by, the bird finally loses his cool. But it just so happens that fox showed up for a reason, and the little bird’s outburst leads to a surprise ending you’ll want to read again and again.
