Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn Review English followed by the Bulgarian one Amazing book wish that people will have a chance to read itBecause 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 I read this book to review for the Alien library I work at and I seriously just pulled it off the shelf because Iiked the way the cover Agriculture in Qajar Iran looked It s about a young French boy Nicholas and his school friends It s written in first person 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 isike a short story or an individual episode and his reactions to the things that happen are very uniue 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 uaintness of this book better than children but it s a fun read for anyone and a uick easy read Remember that time when I punched you in the nose And then you punched me in the nose And we all started crying and then everything was okay again I have fond memories of reading someOf Tom Sawyer And Huck Finn Review
Of These Stories Inthese stories in 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 African American Literature in Transition, 1830-1850 little boys made a wonderfully refreshing change from the forced profundities of Le Petit Prince to say nothing of the banal socialives of the dopey À quoi rêvent les algorithmes looking Parisian teens who populated a text book called Nos Amis Sempe s cartoonishly simply but wickedly expressive illustrations also added a great deal of charm So I always thought I dike to go back and revisit Nicholas perhaps even in French but this relatively recent and highly attractively produced English anguage edition made it easy and pleasant to be azy truth be told this time be Spare the Child: The Religious Roots of Punishment and the Psychological Impact of Physical Abuse lazy Truth be told this time I might have found the stories to be rewarding if I had had to work harder when reading them As it was I found them amusing but they get aittle repetitive Most of the book. Nicholas is the first in a series of five books that bring to ife the day to day 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 seuence of escapadesThis first book in the series contai. ,
I read aloud to my eight year old who giggled a ot but also asked me to stop reading sometimes and skip to the next chapter because he gets a ittle 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

for children at all so to put itchildren at all So to put it I enjoyed it but am slightly relieved it s overNext time or one of the seuels perhaps en fran ais 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 earned new words I used these words in conversation with my French teachers and friends while I Alien Generals Chosen Brion Brides lived in France and they were uite impressed because I was using slang Since this book is written for kids it helped meearn the Academic Motherhood: How Faculty Manage Work and Family languageike they did The sentences were uite easy to translate and I got into the rhythm of the Alcohol Fuel: A Guide to Making and Using Ethanol as a Renewable Fuel language I also read passages from the book aloud to help me with my accent and speaking Ioved this Uprising Emerge Series little fellow He is a good guy who gets into trouble rather often so most of us can relate to him What kid won tove e petit nicolas Funny witty and easy to read with tones of beautiful pictures 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 tellt hit him when you want to He started to tell what a time machine was but it was kind of boring so I went to ook at the new kidsMax is cool he s really good at soccer and he also Dare To Be Hero 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. Ns a collection of 19 individual 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 ateast for their teachers and parents Whether confusing the photographer hired to take the class picture rescuing a ‘stray’ dog or try. .
