Meet T’choupi! T’choupi se baigne, T’choupi fête son anniversaire, T’choupi est malade.., there’s a book for every taste, age and learning group! Our French teachers use this French phenomenon as a learning tool to teach French. T’choupi has an impressive résumé having appeared in countless books, cartoons, and a movie for more than 15 years. French graphic artist Thierry Courtin is the talent behind T’choupi and decided to focus his career on the character after the birth of his son in the 1990s. The form of T’choupi comes from a visit to the zoological garden in Montréal where he was inspired by koala bears!
