Today when I arrived at school everyone was very excited because there were two new kids called Max and Lili. My friend Alceste told me they had come from the year 2012 in a time machine, I asked Alceste what a time machine was but he was eating a sandwich, Alceste eats all the time and his mouth is always full so he pointed at Agnan and told me to ask him. Agnan is top of the class and the teacher's pet, he's no fun because he wears glasses so you can't hit him when ...more
Amazing book, wish that more people will have a chance to read it.
Because so many adults have forgotten what is to be a kid and what is the way they see the world around us.
Great illustrations as well!
"Малкият Никола" е първата книга, която прочетох на френски. И не защото много знаех френски тогава, а защото беше невъзможно да я намеря в онези години на български.
Това е една превъзходна книг ...more
Great, though, especially if you're looking for a enjoyable book that isn't too hard in French. ...more
It was okay from the first 2 stories but then it got repetitive in the sense that it kept telling reader who was Nicholas' friend like Cuthbert, Alec and the boys kept fighting & punching each other. I was bored to the end. The only one story that got me chuckled was (view spoiler)[the one when Alec & Nicholas smoke the cigar (hide spoiler)] & decided to give extra 1 star just because of...more
This is a book originally written in French which has been translated into English. It's told in the point-of-view of a little boy, probably about seven years old. He gets into a ton of funny situations and he is always in trouble and fighting with his friends.
This is like the French version of Junie B. Jones, in that both of the books have a very authentic kid voice! This book was funny, and it really sounded like a s ...more
Le Petit Nicolas was such a joy to read; it is a children’s book that anyone (child or adult) can connect to. Stories of young friendship, comedy, and growing up are at their best in this collection. Pure, pure delight!
I have heard that this is a bit of a classic in France so that makes me even happier.
I would recommend this strongly to any French speaker/reader!
A delicious character whose many adventures are fun, sweet, hilarious and guaranteed to give you many a happy moment - regardless of age.
In some dreamworld where the two children could cross paths, they would find in each other sweet commiseration for the miseries of childhood inflicted by adults who just don’t understand.
Nicholas faithfully reports everything just as he sees it in his world of school, home and the em ...more
I read this collection of short stories for French class. They were cute and funny. I enjoyed reading about Nicolas and his friends.
Although hilarious, the Nicolas stories also t ...more
Originally published in France, 1959, as "Le petit Nicolas", this edition was first published in 2005 (my version from 2007). Translated by Anthea Bell.
I should admit outright I was never much of a fan of Asterix. I never really got the humour. Maybe 'cause I'm a girl - my brothers all liked them. And so perhaps some of the story here is not my thing because it is so male-centric.
Each chapter stands as ...more
