ERNEST & CÉLESTINE, THE COLLECTION
“Ernest and Célestine, the Collection” presents the original and exciting adventures of a big offbeat bear and a mischievous little mouse.
Ernest is a Bear who marches to the beat of his own drum. He earns his living playing the accordion and performing in the streets. He is perpetually grumpy. He complains, he protests, he resists…But his bad mood is always followed by a big laugh. When he is annoyed or overjoyed, he speaks in his first language, Charabiov. He is courageous and resolute in the face of danger. But he is also superstitious and can be shaken by insignificant events; banging of the shutters, a sheet fluttering in the wind…
In his run-down house, he took in Célestine, a little orphan Mouse. Célestine is as generous with Ernest as she is with her friends. She is always cheerful, optimistic, and determined. When she becomes fixated on a goal, nothing stands in her way, especially not Ernest’s grumpy attitude. She is curious and asks a lot of questions, but with lightheartedness. Célestine is also very daring. Nothing scares her, undoubtedly because she isn’t always aware of all the dangers. She is also a talented artist and writer: she records her adventures with Ernest in little books that she writes and illustrates herself.
