After the success of The Little Prince of Calais, Pascal Teulade tackles a subject that is too seldom present in children’s literature: the Roma. Luludja and her family leave Romania for Paris, but they soon come to realise that the situation of the Roma is no better in France. When their camp is destroyed by the police, Luludja must leave her school and her new friends. In order to earn money, her parents ask her to dance on the square in front of Notre-Dame de Paris to the sound of her father’s violin. Will she follow in the footsteps of the illustrious Esmeralda?
A beautiful novel about courage and solidarity, with Notre-Dame de Paris and its mysteries as a backdrop.
