And inside the hazelnut was... a snowflake!

Illustrated by Clotilde Perrin

Tale from age 6 - Bayard Éditions - Mes 1ers J'aime Lire n°121 - 2015 (reprint of the text that appeared in print in January 2013) The story: Where the sun hides to sleep, an old man lived with his daughter. Every morning, the father left at dawn. Every evening, he brought back something to eat. And he also brought back... a story!

With a whisper, this tale speaks to very young readers about passing on stories, the pleasure of telling them, the power of stories and the imprint they leave on our lives. But also about the importance of living this life, the real life.
