LOTS OF FUN!! Nov 19, 2007
If you're very image-oriented, you won't like this. But to read it is absolute fun. I should have chosen something with less text and more images as a gift for my young nephews, but now their Dad is reading it for them and they're enjoying it very much. That Nicolas is something!
Huge FAN of Petit Nicolas and Goscinny Sempe May 12, 2007
My French teacher gave me one of the "Petit Nicholas" then I'm so hooked to it. "The GREATEST book ever!" is all I can describe. You'll find Goscinny + Sempe are made for each other and createsd such a GREAT & SUCESSFUL Nicolas series. Just so so so so so...... much fun reading it! Smiles from bottom of heart!
J'aime Nicolas Mar 10, 2007
This is the second Petit Nicolas book I've read. I love him. I think the book is at a 5th or 6th grade level in French. I love them because I don't need a dictionary to read it and the stories are cute and entertaining. Also, I've memorized this statement, "Je me suis mis a pleurer...", because if he's disappointed, he always begins crying! No wonder his mom and dad sent him to summer camp this summer.
un livre fantastique! Nov 23, 2005
If you know some French, even just a little bit, then you should not miss this book! The stories are from the perspective of a mischievious young French boy, and his observations and ideas will make you roll with laughter. The stories themselves are excellent, but in my opinion it is the way they are told that makes the book a real gem of comedy. The Petit Nicolas books are helpful for those learning or brushing up on French. I'd say that anyone who has completed a French class in high school or college should have enough knowledge of the language to appreciate this book. If you're one of those like me who has forgotten a lot of French, then I recommend reading it with a French dictionary handy...it is worth the effort! Recommended highly for those who like to laugh and have at least a basic reading knowledge of French.
You will laugh your head off and never want to put it down! Dec 22, 1999
This book is by far the best book in the "Le Petit Nicolas" series. It humorously captures all of the little (and big) things that make travelling with children such a tiring and hilarious adventure. The funniest chapter is called "La Plage, c'est chouette" and I have never laughed so hard as when I read the chapter. The vocab wasn't too tricky and I would recommend this book to anyone learning French or anyone who knows French. C'est tres interessant, et moi, je l'aime. Et je pense que vous allez aimer "Les vacances du Petit Nicolas"! Achetez-le aujourd'hui! Buy it today!
