From the author of "War Horse" comes a gentle, evocative story of a young city boys summer in 1960s rural Provence. When Yannick learns that he is to stay with his aunt Mathilde and her family in the South of France, he cannot believe his luck. He has rarely been out of Paris, and if the paintings in his mothers beloved Cezanne book are to be believed, surely Provence is paradise itself. So begins an idyllic month for the young city boy: roaming the gentle hills and rolling valleys and daydreaming about his beautiful cousin Amandine; helping at his aunt and uncles bustling village inn; feeling that he has come to the most wonderful place in the world. But one evening the spell is broken when an important local comes for dinner and Yannick accidentally destroys a precious drawing the man leaves behind. How can the devastated Yannick make things right again -- and what surprising discoveries might come of it?
From the author of "War Horse" comes a gentle, evocative story, set in the 1960s, of a young city boy's summer in rural Provence, the inspiration for many of Paul Czanne's paintings. Full color.
