Songs by Bïa Illustrated by Caroline Hamel
A charming children’s story set to various styles of music, from rock & roll and soul to rap and disco. For his birthday, a small boy receives a very special gift: a skunk! He chooses to name her Josephine and together they become best friends. The duo takes great pride in putting on pyjama parties with a cast of zany characters including a sleep-walking dog, a grizzly bear policeman, and a rabbit who is deeply in love with a fox. Bring down the lights and turn on the disco ball, it’s time to dance!
Bïa succeeded in getting the parents and children on the dance floor. LA PRESSE
