The animals of the little circus are so bored that the circus master charters Papy Pêchou to take them by boat to their home continent ─ far-away Africa. It’s a new adventure for the salty old seadog who embarks elephant, lion, chimpanzee, giraffe and all ─ like a real Noah’s Ark. Life aboard is organized: The deck has to be well scrubbed and turns taken at steering the ship and painting the hull. Wondrous offshore encounters with leaping dolphins and flying fish amaze all aboard.
Hubert Rublon is an artist from Western France. He paints maritime themes for galleries, creating a wonderful childhood universe, notably with his famous Papy Pêchou character, an old salt with a soft heart.
