Little Pierrot: Get the Moon

Series by Alberto Varanda. St. Louis, MO: Lion Forge, 2017

Originally published in French, this story is about a young boy who thinks and daydreams about about the nature of things. Whether he might fly, about fear, about immortality, but mainly just about life. Little Pierrot shares his thoughts with a wise snail (with a penchant for physics and Newtonian laws) who is with him just about all the time.

Thoughtful; great for critical reading and discussions on philosophy, scientific inquiry, physics, life.

Grades 4+
