Livre intéressant

De mon père: Germain Dion

J’aurai la chance et le plaisir d’être au Salon du livre de Montréal
à la Place Bonaventure,

le samedi 17 novembre, de 11 h à 12 h et de 18 h à 20 h,

au stand de Vermillon à l’intérieur du kiosque du RÉCF, no 617
pour vous rencontrer et dédicacer des exemplaires de

Minouche II, la chatte du neuvième étage,

un conte fantaisiste illustré par le dessinateur Pierre Legrand.

Germain Dion

Rassurez-vous : votre chatte personnelle n’imitera jamais les frasques

La chatte se raconte au « je », dans le livre. Elle s’appelle Minouche II,
parce que sa mère du même nom a péri sous une voiture. Un glossaire
explique à la fin les principales propriétés des chats.
