We invite you to participate in a contest for kids in order to win a book of Joann Sfar's drawn illustrations of Jean de la Fontaine's fables!

If you are aged between 8 and 16 years old, if you like to draw and if you speak or learn French, then grab your pencils! Choose one fable of Jean de la Fontaine you like the most, write it down on one side, and draw its illustration on the other side.

To go with your drawing, write a short text in French that explains why did you choose this fable. Send your illustration (scan or good quality photo) and your text to before April 30, 2021.
