Feather is about a musical girl who is also tenacious, tough, and a real fighter. Living in a household consisting of her father and three brothers, Feather often gets the short end of the stick, meaning the laundry, cooking, and grocery shopping. One afternoon, she gets a black eye and all her plans change. This is a great book about being a girl, taking charge, and realizing your dreams! Remi Courgeon was born in Choisy-le-Roi, near Paris. He studied art at the Ecole Estienne. He works as a children's book illustrator and painter, and has had exhibitions at home and abroad. He also works in advertising.
The illustrations shine...with gorgeous, intricate scenes of Paulina's home life and training, thoughtful portraits of each character, and little treats such as boxing gloves arranged in a heart. ...a beautiful and unusual tale of family and strength. -Kirkus Reviews Elegant and melancholic, Courgeon's posterlike images suit the mood of a story whose subtle details (of her father, a Russian miner turned cab driver: Feather could see how tired he really was ) create an intimate connection between readers and a girl who forges her own path. -Publishers Weekly
