If you thought that dirty children were stupid, you’re in for a surprise! Especially if your name is Yvonne Carré.
Have you heard of the stinky tribe? They’re a little gang of dirty children who live with their animal friends in huts made of sticks. There’s Laurent, the tall redhead with his two foxes, Lucie with her braids and her grass snake and tiny little Fanette Ducoup, the leader who saved the tribe from Yvonne Carré’s clutches. If there’s one person who loathes the forest children, it’s Yvonne Carré, the head of the orphanage! She’s determined to clean up those cheeky monkeys and has tried everything to lure them into her washing machine. And she’d have succeeded, too, if a certain tiny little girl hadn’t stepped in.
Today’s children are often cut off from nature and have little freedom – supposedly for their safety – so it’s thrilling to read a story that’s as smart as the children it portrays, and to dwell on Magali Le Huche’s illustrations! Nonstop fun, ecology and freedom. Thanks, Élise and Magali!
