Le tricot is a tender story about the passing on of knowledge between generations.

Since she was little, Madeleine’s grandmother has been knitting.

She has made scarves for her brother gone to war, stockings to keep the toes warm for those she loves and also mittens, toques and hats.

But the work she is most proud of is her very first scarf, which she gave to Madeleine.

Delighted, the little girl wraps it around her neck before leaving for school without noticing that a strand of wool has hung on the door of the house

The author

Jacques Goldstyn was born in 1958 in Saint-Eugène d’Argentenay where his paternal grandfather was a fur inspector. He graduated from the Université de Montréal in geology and worked in Gaspésie, Abitibi and then Alberta in petroleum geology. In 1981, he illustrated his first book: Le petit débrouillard, a collection of experiences in which the characters he created, the “Débrouillards” (resourceful) band, evolve. For the past few years, Jacques Goldstyn has been publishing books at La Pastèque Editions which, with each publication, add an important part to the work of this invaluable author.
