2e price: The crazy adventure of the family Saint-Arthur t. 10 – “Back to nature” by Paul Beaupere
In Saint-Arthurs, it’s time for an ecological transition! Dad planted enough in the garden to survive, and even to survive. Mom is fixing the house so she doesn’t consume “like animals”. Brune brings back dozens of ideas from college to save the planet…
But Alex, he reacts: he dreams of having a big car, eats half a beef a day, and refuses to fix it.
Add to that:
– the packages full of strange seeds sent by Grandpa through the mail and sprouting before arriving…
– the rabbits that Charlotte raised in the bottom of the garden without any intention of eating them;
– and the unusual development of twins who are almost two years old, who read science books;
and you get a 10th “Saint-Arthur” you’ll still be laughing at in 10 years!
