L'INCROYABLE HISTOIRE

DU MOUTON QUI SAUVA

UNE ÉCOLE

ILL. PAULINE KERLEROUX

'The amazing story of the sheep that saved a school' is a short novel for 8 to 12 year-old children. It's inspired by true events that happened in France a few years ago.

The story takes place on an imaginary tiny island in French Brittany. To save their school -- that has only 29 pupils when the law says 30 or more -- the locals have an idea: a sheep enrolled as a pupil!
