"A splendidly subversive, self-absorbed, hilarious publication. imagine Kafka translated by means of Groucho Marx, with commentaries."—Kirkus Reviews

"The author's exuberant humor, suggesting the absurdist drama of Eugéne Ionesco, if now not the quick fiction of Franz Kafka, is quickly obvious during this new translation. . . . hugely recommended."—Richard Koss, Library Journal

Le Petit Nicolas - Tome I

By Sempé-Goscinny

A priori, le petit Nicolas est un enfant comme les autres. Pourtant, le récit de ses aventures n'en finit pas de surprendre par le nombre de bêtises que lui et sa petite bande de copains déclenchent en permanence ! Et il faut être drôlement sufferer et avoir beaucoup de mérite, comme sa maîtresse ou ses mom and dad, pour vivre avec un pareil petit diable !

Aucun adulte ne semble pouvoir résister à Nicolas et ses copains, Agnan le chouchou, ou Eudes le costaud, ni le photographe de l'école, ni l'inspecteur en personne, ni même le directeur ou le pauvre surveillant, M. Bouillon. Bref, le petit Nicolas et toute sa bande sèment un joyeux désordre et une belle zizanie partout où ils passent.

L'écriture, proche du langage oral, rehausse le comique des events et l'on ne peut s'empêcher de rire lorsqu'on écoute le petit Nicolas raconter ses multiples aventures, avec los angeles naïveté et l. a. candeur d'un enfant qui semble ne pas très bien saisir l'importance de tous ses actes et les réactions qu'ils entraînent auprès des adultes. De bonnes rigolades en viewpoint, même si l. a. spécificité de cet humour nécessite quelquefois l'explication des grands ! --Xavier Marciniak
