Un trésor dans
mon jardin

Stories and songs Gilles Vigneault Illustrations Stéphane Jorisch Singers Sylvain Cossette, Richard Desjardins, Nancy Dumais, Michel Faubert, Macha Grenon, Yves Lambert, Daniel Lavoie, Lynda Lemay, Luck Mervil, Michel Rivard, Hart-Rouge

Tender, subtle and irresistibly simple songs with lyrics that will delight children’s ears. Gilles Vigneault’s wandering mind carries us far away into an imaginative world full of poetry. J’ai pour toi un lac and Les amours, les travaux, two “adult” classics he penned many years ago, fit perfectly alongside lullabies and nursery rhymes. The 13 songs are also available on a DVD as short animated films produced by various filmmakers.
