About the Author:

Claire Babin is a children's book editor in Paris, France, who specializes in music. She is the author of many children's books, including the Gus series. In these books she invites the reader to enter into Gus's games and daydreams. Her writing is supple and perfectly pitched to a child's imagination. Olivier Tallec was born in Brittany in 1970. After graduating from the Ecole Supérieure d'Art graphique in Paris he worked in advertising as a graphic designer, after which he devoted himself to illustration. Since then he has done numerous illustrations for newspapers and magazines and has illustrated over 50 books for children.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Despite the sounds of the other children at play, Gus manages to doze off while sitting against a tree during recess. Soon he is dreaming that he is a big, old tree with bark striped red, yellow, and orange just like the sweater he wears. He feels the wind, watches the forest creatures, enjoys a moonlit night, and experiences refreshing drops of rain. Back in the schoolyard, Gus awakens to the call of his friends, who are now wearing raincoats and carrying umbrellas. This story glories in the joys of nature and being in the forest. A glossary contains tree-related words that are found in capital letters throughout the text. The illustrations are a blend of paintings and photographs. As Gus begins to dream, the artwork turns into a surreal mix of textures, perspectives, and colors. Their dreamlike quality complements the text nicely.—Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
