George Laurent finds a lot of ways NOT to go south or north or any other direction. He is a master of the éclair and the strudel, but he is possibly a homebody kind of a bird. Perhaps he’s just too busy with yoga classes to visit the Alaskan tundra like his friends?
Oh my, well, there’s a story here. Fortunately, George Laurent and Pascal Lombard get to talking one day, and the truth about George Laurent’s missed flying lessons comes out. A good friend like Pascal Lombard might just be able to help – with training or an engineering project or something.
This is a wonderful story about overcoming or moving past the things you are bad at, making friends, and taking risks. It is also a completely delightful visual experience, with funny little realistic touches. It’s probably a bit too detailed for most of my storytime listeners, but one-on-one, it’s a treat!
