Everybody loves a Hero

The kindness of a stranger is illustrated in the story The Man with the Sunny Umbrella. Rain is pouring for a week, when suddenly the sun comes out and children with their families head to the park for a friendly soccer game.

Animal de l’Année vous emmène à la Ferme Joyeuse où vous ferez la connaissance de Nulou.

Nulou a très envie d’assister à un concours où tous les animaux montreront ce qu’ils savent faire, mais il ne se croit pas assez doué pour y participer. Il est fasciné par une oie qui boit du jus d’orange à la paille tout en dansant sur la pointe des pattes, et par un tigre qui adore le chocolat aux noisettes.French-cover-17 copy.jpg

Tout à coup Nulou
remarque qu’un peu plus loin l’écurie est en feu. Il court alors à fond de train pour sauver les chevaux.

En un rien de temps Nulou est devenu un héros et est élu Animal de l’Année.

«Nous avons imaginé l’histoire de Nulou pour faire revivre les cinq Irish Terriers à poils lisses qui ont fait la joie de notre famille pendant de nombreuses années.»

Diversity is not just Black & White: Wiggles Press has made multicultural books for Chinese, French, Portuguese and Spanish readers.

As an exchange student in Asia 35 years ago, I realized that although I was reading books about other cultures, few outside the United States were even aware that African-Americans storybooks existed.

As a mother of three, I wanted to share books about our home life with my friends from China, Japan, and Argentina (to name a few) but I couldn’t find many in their languages.

Censoring in China made it even harder because most thought of African American culture as only rap music or violence, stereotypes.

This is why I have made it an effort to publish and translate storybooks with positive main characters and stories that resonate with families around the globe.
