World War II

21597 Coucou la Goutte by Terré

Coucou la Goutte/Plays her Part in the War.

"Captain Hélene Terré is the Commandant of the Voluntaires Françaises of the Free French Forces. She herself has experienced the bitterness of seeing her country over-run by the Germans and has been supported by the knowledge that she is helping to keep the flame of freedom burning. Something of this is reflected in Coucou's life. She is a little black French girl, who, after an adventurous escape from France succeeds in joining the Free French and carrying out a dangerous job which brings glory to her and success to her cause." (flap) A straightforward morale-building wartime story in French and English, illustrated simply with bright colours, about a brave and patriotic young girl. (La goutte is her drop of French blood, interesting in view of present conditions.) NOTE: This book has been sold.
