Abigaël has had enough. Every time she tries something, it ends in disaster. So this time she’s made up her mind: she’s not going to do anything! This way, it’s impossible to go wrong. Unfortunately, she has to go on a field trip. She gets lost in the forest. She has no choice but to spend the night there. Will she manage to find shelter for the night? Yes! And find breakfast? Yes! And find her friends? Of course she will!And although a bear comes to her help, it is above all within herself that Abi will find the resources to get through her misadventures.

A humorous tale of learning, with gouache illustrations in bright, pop colours.
