  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2015 July #1
    A shy red squirrel is coaxed out of his shell by his friendly, tree-dwelling neighbors. Edmond, who may just be related to Mélanie Watt's Scaredy Squirrel, likes staying safely at home making pom-poms and nut jam. Mr. George Owl, who lives above, loves exploring outside and collecting materials to make costumes. Harry, the bear downstairs, is the host with the most and throws fabulous parties for all the forest animals. On the night of one such party, Edmond wants desperately to attend but just can't work up the courage. Enter gregarious George, who insists that Edmond must come and dance at the party. Together, George (now dressed as a seagull) and Edmond (in his finest pom-pom hat) have a wonderful time with Harry and the other guests. The electric-colored, retro illustrations are a pure delight, full of charming details that beg to be revisited. Almost everyone has experienced some sort of social anxiety, and Edmond's transformation through friendship will come as an encouraging comfort to those who need it. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

Astrid Desbordes lives in Paris, where she works as an editor and an author. She received her degree in philosophy and has written several books on religion and philosophy for adults, but she also writes rich and unusual stories for children. Her first book to be published in the US (also by Enchanted Lion) was Daydreams of A Solitary Hamster, a clever and absolutely charming riff on Rousseau for young readers.

Marc Boutavant is an award-winning author and illustrator. For years, Boutavant has drawn for picture books and comics, and he&;s done his fair share of editorial illustration as well. His cartoons and picture books have made him a widely sought after illustrator. Boutavant&;s lively, expressive, and inventive illustrations appeal to both children and their parents, for they are simple and complex, witty, playful, and probing all at the same time. Ghosts, another Boutavant treat, is also published by Enchanted Lion Books.
