A very happy publication day to Clementine Beauvais whose children's book, Piglettes, is released today from Pushkin Press!
The summer three girls found love, friendship and sausages...
Awarded the Gold, Silver and Bronze trotters after a vote by their classmates on Facebook, Mireille, Astrid and Hakima are officially the three ugliest girls in their school, but does that mean they’re going to sit around crying about it?
Well… yes, a bit, but not for long! Climbing aboard their bikes, the trio set off on a summer roadtrip to Paris, their goal: a garden party with the French president. As news of their trip spreads they become stars of social media and television. With the eyes of the nation upon them the girls find fame, friendship and happiness, and still have time to consume an enormous amount of food along the way.
Clémentine Beauvais (born 1989) is a French children's author living in the UK. She started reading children's books early, and somehow never stopped. Now she writes her own, in both French and English, for a variety of ages, and is a lecturer in English and Education at the University of York. Piglettes won four prizes in France, including the biggest children's book prize, the Prix Sorcières. Film and stage versions are also in production. Now Clémentine has translated her book into English!
