RECOMMENDED FROM AGE 7: Jean and his little brother Paul live with their ever-busy father, but only Yvette, their nice nanny, cares about them. Jean hasn’t seen his mother for ages. So he’s overjoyed when the girl next door Michèle reads him a postcard from his Mum in the USA. In his imagination, Jean now travels every day to see her: he discovers unknown places, galloping through the prairie and seeing amazing animals. But reality also has an adventure in store for him: his first day at school… The lovingly-made animation tells sensitively and amusingly of a little boy for whom it’s time to start growing up.
