Bonjour, Camille

I fell in love with this charming little book when I first saw it on the lovely Petite Alma blog and I’ve been wanting to get my hands on it ever since.

On Sunday mornings, as soon as the sun comes out,
Camille opens her eyes and puts on her battledress:
a tutu and a top hat. She has so many things to do:

Jumping on the bed until her mummy says THAT’S ENOUGH!
Eating loads and loads of cherries.
Hiding all the umbrellas.
Choosing a new favourite colour.
Giving names to the waves.
Asking the wind in a whispering voice to tell her a story.
Letting an ice-cream melt in her hand.
Drawing thousands of faces on thousands of balloons.
Yelling to the winter to go away.
Looking for something unexpected on a map…
But then Camille hears a voice from the other side of the door. Stop that jumping!


How beautiful.  Bonjour, Camille – an illustrated tale by Bobo Choses conjures up such lovely images.  I think everyone knows a little girl just like her.

P.S.  I do the favourite colour thing ALL the time. Right now it’s yellow.
