The Adventures of Enzo

Enzo’s First Day Under the Eyes of Mister Taurus / Le premier jour d’Enzo sous l’oeil de Monsieur Taureau by Sonia Colasse

About the Book

FR: Le carnet de bord d’Enzo est un message universel écrit sous forme de petites histoires au cours desquelles le personnage Enzo vit diverses aventures. Ces historiettes associent des valeurs fondamentales de la vie à des illustrations simples. Cette association complice fait un petit clin d’oeil au sens moral pour apprendre et apprécier la simplicité de la vie vite oubliée dans notre société moderne. De même, chaque récit encourage l’enfant à découvrir la langue française tout en enrichissant le vocabulaire de sa langue maternelle.

EN: Enzo’s diary is an universal message written in the form of stories in which Enzo, the main character, has various adventures. These short stories join fundamental values to simple illustrations. With a nod towards morality, this original blend enables children to learn and appreciate the simplicity of life, a value too quickly forgotten in our modern society. It also enables them to discover the French language while enriching the vocabulary of their mother tongue. Monsieur Taureau est tout fier ! Il a un nouveau petit ami : un petit garçon prénommé Enzo. Mr. Taurus is very happy! He has a new friend: a little boy called Enzo. http://www.soloinfinity.com/enzo/english/adventures.php

My Review:  Mister Taurus is happily waiting the birth of Enzo who will be born before sunset on Tuesday the 21st of April. But Enzo seem to be taking his time in his warm mother’s tummy. While Mister Taurus was waiting on the birth of his friend, he started to think about what Enzo would be like. Would he like playing tricks on his friends? Mister Taurus was delighted when Enzo was born he now has a friend to play with and can’t wait for them to discover new adventures.

The great thing about this book is that it’s not written only in English but in French. In case you were wondering, Mister Taurus is a Bull. The series are based on astrological signs.

The illustrations by Sarah Bainton help bring the story to life with colorful pages. This is a well written story by the author.

Après une très belle journée de sagesse, Enzo vient d’apprendre que pour son premier Noël il ira avec ses parents à Tahiti. After a day of learning how to be wise, Enzo has just heard that, for his first Christmas, he will go to Tahiti with his parents.

My Review: Enzo is spending his first Christmas with his parents at Tahiti, a French Polynesian island in the South Pacific, where the sea is turquoise and the sun always shine and the air is warm. Enzo was introduce to his nanny Maeva who will be taking are of him while his parents are out doing grown up things.  Enzo notice that Maeva has a blue haired creature that is her pet and his name is Mister Capricorn. Mister Capricorn is a sea-goat who quickly became friends with Enzo.
