Earle Dickson and his new bride Josephine begin their lives together. The end. (Not really. There's more.) Josephine has a… proclivity for injuring herself. Earle attaches cotton to long strips of adhesive tape, telling Josephine to cut off a length when she needs one. Since Earle works as a cotton buyer at Johnson and Johnson, he shares his idea. They're a big hit. The end. (Again, not really!) After a few false starts (much like the hilarious "the end"s in this story), the Band-Aid is developed and becomes a massive hit. The end. (Really.). Grades K-3. 2018.

Léon, le sympathique et maladroit cyclope à la chevelure en brosse, se familiarise ici avec une trentaine de dictions: L'argent… ne fait pas le bonheur, Après la pluie, le beau temps, Mieux vaut tard que jamais, Qui s'y frotte, s'y pique, etc. Ces derniers sont tour à tour passés en revue dans un court paragraphe s'appuyant sur des exemples concrets afin de révéler la leçon de morale qui sous-tend chacun d'eux. Une courte bande dessinée humoristique (entre une et huit cases) met le tout en images sur fond de couleurs vives. Suite de "Léon et les émotions". Années 1-3. 2015.
