Once upon a time there were four friends who always had oodles and oodles of fun together. After their last adventure full of surprises, a sudden torrential rainfall forces Bertie and gang to take shelter atop Blue Mountain. When they emerge, they encounter an extraordinary girl named Alice, who can grow big or small at the snap of her fingers. Together, they spend a magical night singing and dancing under the moon and shooting stars. A sequel to A Picnic in the Sun, this imaginative musical tale by two-time Governor General Award winner Christiane Duchesene and Jérôme Minière is interspersed with four beloved traditional songs and 14 original tracks performed with pizzazz and emotion by Clerel and Geneviève Toupin. Whimsical illustrations by Marianne Ferrer accompany the story in hardcover and ebook formats, alongside animated narration by Mischa Cheeseman. Camaraderie is at the heart of the adventures in both A Feast Beneath the Moon and A Picnic in the Sun. “Friendship is very important to me, especially the relationships between individuals, big or small,” says Duchesne. “Friendship requires trust, complicity, mutual aid, all of which are essential values that children share at a very young age and in a spontaneous way.” A Feast Beneath the Moon Available for preorder now.
