Author: Dominique Demers Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 24/10/2019

At a train station on her way to meet her friends Marie and Leo to recover her pet rock, Madame Charlotte accidentally picks up the Prime Minister's elephant-hide bag instead of her own. As it contains important documents and the politician is due to make an important speech on children's education, Miss Charlotte - hoping that she might get a ministerial job out of this - embarks on a quest to track him down. Along the way, Miss Charlotte cannot help making speeches on behalf of the country's leader and putting her own original twist on his boring children's policy, while attracting at the same time the attentions of the media and the secret service.

The Adventures of Mademoiselle Charlotte

Author: Dominique Demers Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/01/2019

Mademoiselle Charlotte is a modern Mary Poppins who wears a large hat and a crumpled dress that make her look like a scarecrow, and she talks to a rock. In the first story in the series, Mademoiselle Charlotte is THE NEW TEACHER. Children think she is crazy at first, but soon realize she makes school more fun than ever, getting them to measure the room with cooked spaghetti in maths class, telling fascinating stories about a gorilla and even taking the pupils on at football. In the second story, she is THE MYSTERIOUS LIBRARIAN who arrives in the village of Saint-Anatole to take over the tiny library. The locals are surprised to find out that she does things differently. Wearing a long blue dress and a giant hat, she takes her books out for a walk in a wheelbarrow and shows the children that reading can be fun and useful. Sometimes she is so caught up in the magic of the stories she shares with her audience that she forgets all sense of reality - so much so that one day she loses consciousness and the children must find a way to bring her back. In the third story, Mademoiselle Charlotte is THE NEW FOOTBALL COACH. Prepare yourself to see how she uses very odd methods to prepare the children for the big match, teaching them how to lose! And to have fun. Incredibly, it seems to work, as the kid who was always useless on the pitch suddenly scores a screamer in practice. But will their hopes of victory be dashed when the ambitious star player decides to join the other team? A marvellous tale about believing in yourself and beating the odds.
