Découvrez la prose touchante de Gilles Tibo dans ce nouvel album mettant en scène un personnage dont l'humanité et la générosité vous réconforteront.

Madame Lili vit seule avec son canari. Chaque jour, elle se rend au parc pour réparer les jouets, les vêtements et les coeurs brisés des enfants. Puis un jour, c'est au tour de madame Lili de se rendre au parc, le coeur brisé. Des larmes coulent sur ses joues alors qu'elle explique que son canari est mort. Les enfants et les parents du parc se relaient pour lui rendre le sourire, preuve que la gentillesse nous est souvent rendue.

Children flock to Madame Lili, who always has the right tool to repair a broken toy or sew on a missing button. But when one little boy brings his problem to Madame Lili, she realizes this one needs more than a simple fix. She offers all the compassion and comfort she can. Later, when it's her turn to need the same, the boy leads the pack to help her.

This is a deeply touching story that takes on sadness and death - very balanced in the story and art by life, hope and joy. Young readers will be able to come to it in various ways, depending on their own readiness and experiences.

Stunning, mixed-media art by award-winning illustrator Irene Luxbacher brings the emotions and scenes to life in evocative detail.
