Book about Le P’tit Train du Nord linear park in English

© Courtoisie

An English version of the illustrated book Le P’tit Train du Nord, which has been selling nicely in French for the past year, will be launched virtually on Saturday, August 1, by publishing house les Éditions du Grand Élan.

 The Laurentians through the story of the train

Written and illustrated by Isabelle Charbonneau, Le P’tit Train du Nord, a book for both young and old, invites the reader on a jaunt through the beautiful Laurentian Mountains, from Mont-Laurier to Saint-Jérôme. During the trip the train stops in every station and invites the animals of the region to come experience a great adventure.

Brightly coloured and full of fun, the book facilitates discovery of the Laurentians, its wildlife and heritage. The text is written like a song, and its musicality is one of the strengths of the work that can be enjoyed without restraint.

The Little Train of the North

One thousand copies of the P’tit train du Nord sold in a year. English-speaking people, attracted by its cover and title, showed great interest. To respond to the demand, an English adaptation, done by Faith J Cormier, was released in June. As in the French version, rhymes are used to respect the musicality of the original.

The French-language version is available in all the local bookstores. The English version has been available since mid-June from Carpe Diem in Mont-Tremblant. For details about the virtual launch, please go either to the Facebook page of Éditions du Grand Élan or to their website at
