Ribambelle de rubans is the French edition of Ribbon Rescue by children's author Robert Munsch. This is a wonderful story about a Mohawk girl named Jillian who helps her neighbours while on her way to a family wedding. The girl selflessly assists others during her walk to the community church when she encounters the harried groom who is lost and missing his shoe laces, the distressed bride whose hair is all askew, and a family whose wedding gift is in need of wrapping. Jillian comes to their rescue by taking the long ribbons from her new ribbon dress made especially for the wedding by her grandmother. She helps the groom by providing two ribbons for his shoes laces, ribbons for the bride's hair, and ribbons to wrap the family's wedding gift. But when Jillian finally reaches the church she is told that her messy outfit will prevent her from attending the wedding. Fortunately the grateful bride and groom notice the girl outside the church and invite her to be their flower girl. The girl leads the procession into the church. The colourful illustrations by Eugenie Fernandes capture the motion and joy of this classic Munsch story. Like many of Robert Munsch's story books this one was influenced by a young Kahnawake Mohawk girl Munsch once met. The storyteller's skillful incorporation of an aspect of traditional Mohawk clothing into a fun children's book is a credit to the author and his ability to find interesting stories in everyday lives of Canadian children. The final page of the book credits the Mohawk girl from Kahnawake named Jillian. A marvelous story for reading aloud to young children from preschool to grade two. This book is also available in English paper and hardcover editions as well as a kit format.
