DU MOUTON QUI SAUVA
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!
