Special Children's Event
Will an adventurous octopus ever find a friend? In Monsieur Pierre, follow the lonely Monsieur Pierre Poulpe from his home in a Paris fountain all the way to California. Humorous illustrations chart his search for a friend across the Seine, up the Eiffel Tower, into the Louvre, out to Notre Dame and up Montmartre. Along the way, he surprises some of the most famous inhabitants of the City of Light. Sadly, none of them are eager to befriend a little octopus. Just when it seems all is lost, Pierre has a clever idea that takes him to a new land with two new friends. In a surprise ending, Pierre and his new friends are visited in his new home by some of the famous Parisians he left behind.
