BIJOU The Little Beat by Pierre Amiot

BIJOU The Little Beat

Email this review


Translated from the French, by Jacqueline de Leon, this is the very simple story of little Bijou's adventures when he finds a friend in the orphaned Annette and helps her get to the Carnival. It is an older bear, Anatole who plots the little girl's escape from her horrid aunt (quite a horrid escape too), who tangles with a one-bear band, and who remembers a tent they can hide in when the aunt catches up with them. Disguised as clowns they are safe once more and Annette goes to live with Bijou and his family.
