This is a classic collection of stories in French about Nicolas and his inapt parents Idyllic about life in the late 50s and early 60s, they are full of humour and tales of growing up In France, they are like the equivalent of Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. Review on English, followed by the Bulgarian one Ревюто на английски е първо, следва това на български.Amazing book, wish thatpeople 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 книга, която бих искал повече възрастни хора да прочетат, ще им е от голяма полза.Защото твърде много от тях са забравили напълно, какво е да си дете и как децата виждат и преоткриват заобикалящото ги всеки ден и час.Илюстрациите са отлични!!!Цитат:Вчера пристигна новият учител по гимнастика.— Казвам се Ектор Дювал — рече той — А вие?— Ние не — отвърна Фабрис и всички изпокапахме от смях. Max And Lili Visit My SchoolToday 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 you want to He started to tell me what a time machine was but it was kind of boring so I went to look at the new kids.Max is cool, he's really good at soccer and he also likes fighting, I said he could join our gang and he said sure so now he's in my gang too At break I went to talk to his sister, usually I don't talk to girls because they're dumb and just play with dolls and stuff but Lili looked a bit like my cousin Louisette who is cool so I thought why not Lili told me all about life in 2012, it was really interesting, she got chased by a pedophile and her uncle got put in jail and her dad lost his job and she hangs out a lot on the Internet, I didn't know what the Internet was but Lili says it's like a TV with a typewriter and she met another pedophile there Lili meets a lot of pedophiles, I asked her what they were and she told me, it's kind of gross but really interesting After lunch, we had show and tell and teacher asked me to talk about something and I explained about pedophiles but teacher wasn't happy, she looked really tired and she told me to stand in the corner I don't know why Anyway it was Lili's fault because she explained it to me, maybe she didn't do it right and that's why teacher got mad So at afternoon break I said she shouldn't tell me anystuff and why didn't I tell her about life in 1960 Lili said fine and I said we fight a lot and we play soccer and I had just learned how to smoke I had a cigar I got from my friend and I said would she like to try and she said yes please, so we went behind the bike shed and we tried smoking it I coughed a lot and I felt a bit sick, but Lili was great and she could blow smoke out through her nose it was just like in the movies We had almost finished smoking the cigar when Eudes came looking for us, Eudes is my friend he's a good kid and very strong and likes hitting everyone and he said Lili's mom was there with the time machine and they had to go back to 2012 So we came out and Lili's mom was talking to my mom, and they asked us if we had had fun and learned useful stuff, and I said I had learned what a pedophile was and Lili said she had learned to smoke, and my mom didn't look happy and Lili's mom didn't look happy either, and Lili's mom said they had to go right now and my mom said that was a good idea.I hope Lili comes back tomorrow, she is almost as cool as Louisette, if Louisette doesn't want to marry me when I grow up then I will marry Lili instead. I have fond memories of reading some of these stories in their original form (I think) in my 10th grade French class (sadly, these are the ONLY fond memories I have of studying French!) Goscinny's endearingly naughty little boys made a wonderfully refreshing change from the forced profundities of Le Petit Prince, to say nothing of the banal social lives of the dopey looking Parisian teens who populated a textbook called Nos Amis Sempe's cartoonishly simply but wickedly expressive illustrations also added a great deal of charm So I always thought I'd like to go back and revisit Nicholas, perhaps even in French, but this relatively recent and highly attractively produced Englishlanguage edition made it easy and pleasant to be lazy Truth be told, this time around, I might have found the stories to berewarding if I had had to work harder when reading them As it was, I found them amusing, but they get a little repetitive Most of the book I read aloud to my eightyearold, who giggled a lot, but also asked me to stop reading sometimes, and skip to the next chapter, because he gets a little anxious when things go wrong in stories and these particular stories are not so subtle that he couldn't see that such things as playing hooky and smoking a purloined cigar were not going to end well In fact, sometimes I felt distinctly uneasy myself wondering what my son made of all the of cheerful punches to the nose in this book, and the regret at not being able to whack the teacher's pet because of his glasses Also Goscinny does so much winking over Nicholas' head at the adult reader, who is clearly meant to sympathize with the overwhelmed teachers and parents, that one almost wonders if it's meant for children at all So, to put itsuccinctly, I enjoyed it, but am slightly relieved it's over.Next time, or one of the sequels perhaps, en français? Well, no harm in being optimistic! Reading Le Petit Nicolas series was a great way to improve my fluency in French It was easy enough to read for pleasure and the vocabulary repeated enough so I actually learned new words! I used these words in conversation with my French teachers and friends while I lived in France and they were quite impressed because I was using slang Since this book is written for kids, it helped me learn the language like they did The sentences were quite easy to translate and I got into the rhythm of the language I also read passages from the book aloud to help me with my accent and speaking I loved this little fellow He is a good guy who gets into trouble rather often, so most of us can relate to him. My favorite metro book in France I sometimes had to be really refrain myself from laughing out loud (I got really good at disguising laughter with a cough). |Download Book ♠ Le Petit Nicolas ♈ Nicholas is the first in a series of five books, that bring to life the daytoday adventures of a young school boy—amusing, endearing and always in trouble An only child, Nicholas appears older at school than he does at home; his touchingly naive reactions to different situations cut through the preconceptions of adults to result in a formidable sequence of escapadesThis first book in the series contains a collection ofindividual stories in which, despite trying to be good, Nicholas and his friends always seem to end up in some sort of mischief In the school room, at home and in the playground, their exuberance often takes over and the results are calamitous—at least for their teachers and parents Whether confusing the photographer hired to take the class picture, rescuing a ‘stray’ dog, or trying desperately to help the teacher when the school inspector pays a visit, Nicholas always manages to make matters worseThis hilarious and heartwarming book will ignite laughter in children and adults alike These stories of Nicholas’s cureless antics blend a wonderfully imaginative sense of humour with a refreshing take on life, to leave a lingering aftertaste of ageless romantic charm in any reader I read this book to review for the library I work at, and I seriously just pulled it off the shelf because I liked the way the cover looked It's about a young French boy, Nicholas, and his school friends It's written in firstperson as Nicholas, and what I found particularly endearing was the way the sentences read as though they were really written by a seven year old They run on, but are clear to understand Each chapter is like a short story or an individual episode, and his reactions to the things that happen are very unique Example Alec hit him on the cap with his tomahawk and said he was taking him prisoner and Rufus was upset because he'd dropped his whistle in the grass and I was crying a bit and telling Eddie this was my yard and I never wanted anything to do with him again, and everyone was shouting and it was all great, we were having a fantastic time Adults will probably appreciate the quaintness of this book better than children, but it's a fun read for anyone, and a quick, easy read. I found myself laughing out loud several times while reading this book! I also found myself reading it out loud to anyone in my family who would listen It gave me a glimpse into the mind of my boy and my overgrown boy (husband) So if you want to kind of see how your 7ish year old boy (and his friends) think, read this hilarious book! Sooo cute. What kid won't love le petit nicolas? Funny, witty and easy to read, with tones of beautiful pictures.
