Synopsis

Synopsis

What could be more fun than a country fair? There are so many delights to choose from: the many farm animals, the colorful quilts, the penmanship contests, the delicious pies to eat, and best of all, the friends to see. Gilles Pelletier’s colorful naive paintings capture the flavor of country fairs from coast to coast, however they are celebrated.

“Pelletier’s…paintings are animated and brilliantly colored, and the style is perfectly suited to complement the nostalgic text.”
