Here we are, my first French Friday !
Today I would like to share with you this fun illustration, written by French author Daniel Pennac and illustrated by Quentin Blake. Originally written in French, here is its English translation.
It comes from Daniel Pennac's book "Comme Un Roman" (published by Walker Books as "The Rights of the Reader" in English), written in 1992 and which was a big success in France. In this book, Daniel Pennac talks about his experience of teaching in "challenging" schools, and shares his belief that readers do have rights, including the right NOT to read...! I discovered this only this year, and this is definitely a book I'd like to read.
See you next week for another French Post !
