Le Chant du volcan

Nils is a brilliant musician living a peaceful existence at the bottom of a volcano in Iceland with his music and his langspils. Nils has an incredible talent. When he plays his langspil, even the volcano responds. The instruments he makes are exquisite.

One day, Nils hears about Bjorn, a little boy who also has an artistic talent. When he dances, the volcano responds. Thus begins a tale of friendship between Nils and Bjorn, through which Bjorn learns to master his talent.

This magical tale takes us to the wonderful world of music and dance, under the watchful eyes of the elves.

A gem of a book.
