Little Boy Brown

Le Petit Brown, by Isobel Harris and André François

Little Boy Brown is a young boy who lives in New York City. He describes the world he and his parents live in, with no nature, almost no underground, between tunnels and subways. One day, Hilda, the chambermaid, takes him to her family in the countryside. There he discovers the pleasure of making a fire, helping Hilda to cook a cake and patting the house’s dog. The afternoon tea brings the whole of Hilda’s family together. They speak a foreign language. At the end of the day, it is a wonderful experience for Little Boy Brown whose life has been changed as well as his outlook on the others.
