"La Transatlantique de Monique" by Virginie Nolen-Laissy & Guirec Soudee
If you haven't heard of the young French guy, Guirec, and his pet chicken Monique, who are currently sailing together through the North West Passage on their little yacht, do yourself a favour and look up his page on Facebook or Youtube. You wont believe how cool this is until you watch this short 1min video. Apart from how obviously amazing this adventure is, Guirec is also writing kids books about their travels. So far it's only in French, but I think they are planning to make an English translation too. I thought it would be a good way to practice my French and support the young adventurer by buying a copy of his first book, and it arrived last week. It is wonderful - full of cute drawings and humourous moments. I definitely recommend it, for kids and adults hehe.
