Nicholas by Rene Goscinny, Jean-Jacques Sempe, Phil CleaverIn France and Germany practically every child of seven and upwards knows the adventures of Nicholas. Written by the author of Asterix, Rene Goscinny, and with illustrations by New Yorker illustrator, Jean-Jacques Sempe, the five Nicholas books tell of the endearing exploits of the young French school boy and his chums. Available in twenty six languages and established as a literary cult figure, the sublimely innocent Nicholas has seduced millions of readers all over the world. Considered a classic and regularly used by primary and junior school teachers, these stories have the ability to delight both children and adults. Nicholas is the first of five titles to become available to English speaking children all over the world In some way similar to the cheekiness of Calvin and Hobbes and the innocence and naivete of characters created by the Italian film maker Roberto Benigni, Goscinny and Sempe have created a world of confusion that makes you chuckle out load. Written between 1959 and 1965 these classic books are continually reprinted around the globe and offer, not only an entertaining read, but a vivid description of French life and culture
'illustrated with diabolic humour by Jean Jacques Sempe ... a series of subversive stories about a little French boy which has captivated readers since the Sixties.'
'a chic and sturdily childproof new English edition, translated in ebullient vernacular by Anthea Bell'
'A collection of 19 escapades ... make for hilarious and timeless anecdotes that will have readers giggling.'
'...Liberally endowed with Sempe's tiny, comic cartoon figures, these whimsical mini-adventures will captivate readers...'
