Bertolt Children's Book by Jacques Goldstyn

$15.95

This is a charming, touching story about an imaginative boy whose best friend is an oak tree named Bertolt. The boy admits to being an outlier among his peers, but insists that while he is alone, he is never lonely. Being independent suits him, and he considers his difference to be his advantage.

This book is about the imagination and the wonderful ways in which we nurture ourselves in the process of becoming who we are, and because Bertolt dies in a winter's storm, it is also a book about finitude and loss, sorrow and acceptance.

About the author (2017)

Jacques Goldstyn was born and raised in Montreal. His father taught him how to draw and he drew all the time. Every single day. He then studied seriously, became a geologist and went off to work in gold mines in Abitibi and in the petroleum industry in Alberta. But then, one day, he started to draw again. For many years now, his work has been drawing cartoons for Les Débrouillards and Les Explorateurs, science youth magazines in French Canada. He also writes and illustrates stories for kids age six to 106. He loves running, hiking, and climbing trees, and has never stopped collecting bizarre looking rocks.
