California Dreamin’ by Pénélope Bagieu

Featured Image

An opportunity to discover the history of the famous group The Mamas & The Papas through the story of one of its members: Ellen Naomi Cohen better known as ‘Mama’ Cass Elliot.

The illustrator’s pencil stroke delights the eye, making this as pleasant a reading experience as Culottées.

We learn much more than we might have imagined about the band members’ personal histories and the circumstances of their coming together. The book ends at the very beginning of their success, but this doesn’t hinder the reading experience in the slightest: on the contrary, it leaves you wanting more!

Bonus: there’s a small selection of songs at the end of the book, with explanations of the context in which they were written.

A real favorite and a quick read (ideal for a summer afternoon)!!
