It's pretty famous in France and they even made a movie on it! Anyways, I remember understanding a bit of it, which is always exciting reading a different language and actually understanding what you are reading! I particularly love the illustrations in the book, done by Jean-Jacques Sempé!
So simplistic, yet if I tried to draw this way, I know I would fail... Line drawings are amazing and I would love to improve my skills in drawing in this way, yet when I draw, I almost always feel the need to keep adding detail and shading! The ones in this book by Sempé are sooo cute and even though they are simple, you can get a real sense of the moods, attitudes, reactions and situations from them. LOVE! (:
OH BY THE WAY, almost forgot to mention... I have in fact ordered my very own copy of Le Petit Nicolas (from here), and I am expecting to receive it in the mail any day now! Cannot wait! :D
