Frédérick Wolfe is a French-Canadian author and screenwriter. Frédérick has produced writing for a number of television series, as well as a children’s novel and several pieces of short prose for the Prix de la Nouvelle Radio-Canada.

I’m really interested in Frédérick’s children’s book, “Des roches plein les poches” (Pockets Full of Rocks.) In collaboration with illustrator Marie-Ѐve Tremblay, Frédérick has written a short story concerning a solitary young girl named Alice. Taking a visual, literal metaphor that’s understandable for children as its center point, the story explores how young people can navigate important moments by themselves, and find inner strength.

I also like being able to read through some of Frédérick’s Prix de la Nouvelle entries on his portfolio website. These works take a sensitive approach, weaving stories with a small scope that focus on human interaction, such as in Le Sablier Géant (The Giant Hourglass), where the author recounts interactions with patients in a hospital.
