Product description

A moving children's book inspired by an emblematic Chambord bird

"Ninon and the ospreys" is the third volume in the Contes de Chambord series.

Listening to the story, accompanied by the illustrations, takes young readers to the heart of the Chambord forest, where they discover an emblematic protected bird and actions to safeguard biodiversity.

A documentary page is included at the end of the book to place the tale in a historical context.


Ninon, 12, has always been fascinated by Ospreys, the fascinating migratory birds of prey that nest at Chambord during the mating season. She observes them, studies them and records the highlights of their lives in her diary. One morning, after a stormy night, she discovers a collapsed Osprey nest. What a catastrophe!
How will the birds return to Chambord after their migration?


The first Chambord tale: Jehan et le grand chêne (Jehan and the great oak) will plunge you into the history of the royal navy.

The second Chambord tale: Luce et la liberté will take you to the heart of the story of the protection of works of art during the Second World War and the exceptional destiny of the Château de Chambord.
