The Unexpected Tale of Bastien Bonlivre - Clare Povey

Usborne Books


✨The open door beckoned Bastien, but its allure was tinged with uncertainty. He stepped inside, praying that he'd emerge unscathed.🚪

Bastien Bonlivre is a young boy with an expansive imagination, determined to complete the story left to him in a red notebook—a legacy from his parents.📕

On the other side of Paris, best-selling author Olivier Odieux grapples with the challenge of finishing his latest novel. Collaborating with his sinister brothers, he hatches a wicked plot that threatens to spread fear not only throughout the city but beyond its borders.

What binds these two tales is a perilous secret, a hidden mystery, and an unexpected race across Paris in pursuit of the truth. Can Bastien and his friends—Alice, Theo, and Sami—summon the bravery required to thwart Olivier and safeguard the ending they rightfully deserve? 🧭📕🔐
