FRANCEINFO JUNIOR BOOKS – “Father Christmas’s phone”, by François Morel / Full version of the Interview

Back to Lapland and this year, there is no reason, Santa Claus gave himself a gift! A mobile phone ! He takes pictures of Mrs. Claus who discovered meditation, and has fun taking selfies … In short, it’s his new toy! But there is a problem in size, there is no network … It’s not that bad, nobody has their 06, but when even, you never know … In search of the network and to receive with his new mobile, he finds himself stuck on the highest branch of a tree …

Around Santa Claus we also find his dear reindeer, Dancer, Dashing, Comet, Cupid, Thunder, Tornado, Lightning and Fury, who train in figure skating. In all these pretty little sketches, we still find all the talent of the illustrator Lili La Baleine.

You will see, reading this album, we really have a delicious time, first because it is full of poetry, and also because we find the humor all in finesse and poetry of François Morel, like this passage where Santa Claus makes a phone call to the Pope, it’s short and funny “à la Devos” …

François Morel advises to read The little Nicolas de Sempé and Goscigny.

And that’s good! For the holidays, Gallimard / IMAV éditions, offer a very beautiful book to enter the world of the young boy with Little Nicolas’ big book. There are excerpts, flaps to pull, sweet words to look for, and above all we laugh a lot!
