“Une fête sous la lune” (“A Party Under the Moon”) is the sequel to “Un pique-nique au soleil” (“A Picnic in the Sun”), comprised of a narrated story in French interspersed with twenty original and traditional songs. The story introduces us to four inseparable friends who fleed torrential rains for a new life at the top of the Blue Mountain. Here, Bebert and his buddies will meet a little girl named Alice who appears to have the magical power to take them on a wild ride up high in the sky amongst the shooting stars. It’s time to sing their hearts out as they circle the moon and have the party of their life! In addition to an illustrated story, this book is accompanied by a CD featuring recordings of the narrated story and 18 songs along with unique code for the digital download of the audio.
