Étincelle
Jean-Rieurs
(for boys, ages 7 to 11)

A world of imagination and wonder unfolds…

“For those who see a world in a grain of sand… And a Heaven in a Wild Flower”…

“William Blake”

 

For those who can build with only branches and leaves a wonderful castle…
For those who will hide frogs and fool’s gold in their innocent back pockets…
For those who can cure all woes with a magic and potent blue drink…
For those who are fascinated watching ants at work…

Here they are, the adventurers and explorers of tomorrow!
