A book that’s literally thrown into a panic! Peaceable page numbers crushed beneath a reckless Postman, a sleepy Sheep wandering among the chapters looking for her lost pyjamas; romantic Jeannine, who only wants to hear love stories. What an effort to keep everything in order! Interrupted constantly by a parade of eccentric characters, silly jokes and ingenious ideas, the level-headed Horse tries desperately to tell us about the 9 catastrophes that happened on his birthday, due to a decidedly excessive, bulky gift. Will our hero manage to be taken seriously and to keep the rampant nonsense at bay? Don’t panic! Whatever happens, his story will tumble its way off the pages. An irresistible burlesque that Monsieur Hulot would have loved.
