“Petit guide pour survivre à l’hiver” is the name of this medicine. In a small funny book, Pascal Henrard (author) and François Turcotte (illustrator) have imagined solutions to make you feel better about that sad period of the year.

Absurd humor, puns, stupid games, even more stupid games, four-words crossword about winter, nonsense… 48 pages of this kind of craziness I personally like a lot.

I met Pascal Tuesday at the launch of this book. Actually two books were launched, the other one is another guide that will help people to survive their family. I asked him why he hated winter so much and he needed to write a guide to survive it. And you know what, his answer is rather paradoxical…

David: What do you think of winter?
Pascal: I love winter!

David: What do you like about it?
Pascal: It’s a pleasure to go outside, to ski, to skate, I love cold actually, even though I have a car I love it! You just need to have good tires after all.
David: What about the other guide, to survive family. Do you have to survive your family?
Pascal: Well, sometimes it can be hard. You don’t choose your family, but I’m talking here about the extended family, I think it’s ok with my wife and my kids (ironic smile appearing).

David: What is the best piece of advice to survive winter?
Pascal: Read the book! It’s the only way to survive winter.
