Louis discovers a new species!

Louis has to do an oral presentation on his pet. To everyone’s great surprise, he decides to present his mammoth. Even more surprising, he talks to the class about a new species of hairy Elephantidae only recently discovered: the Rock Mammoth. This proud ancestor of the hairy musicians of the ’70s didn’t actually disappear. In fact, these elephants had had enough of being rock stars and wished for a more tranquil life. So they decided to remain hidden during the last millennia. But now Louis, the great mammoth enthusiast and rigorous scientific apprentice, has discovered this well-kept secret and is ready to reveal it to the world.

Key Selling Points

  • In this humorous illustrated novel, a young boy gives a school presentation about his pet mammoth.
  • Formatted to look like a traditional school notebook, this book is filled with facts, illustrations and hilarious commentary and sidebars.
  • This book offers a basic introduction to the scientific method in a fun and enjoyable way.
  • Translated from French and now available for the first time in English, this quirky French-Canadian import is ready to take center stage.

Eveline Payette studied theater, followed by childhood education. Fascinated by young people who are different, she decided to do a master’s degree on these special spectators. After a brief career in theater, she discovered the field of cultural mediation and now works in schools teaching acting to the young. She lives near Montreal with her family, who are an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Rock Mammoth is her first book.

Guillaume Perreault is a graphic designer but now works mainly as a freelance illustrator and author. His techniques vary according to his projects, but balance, contrast and humor are present in all of his work. Guillaume lives in Gatineau, Quebec.
