The focus of this book is reading habits. In France, reading is a popular pastime with children of primary age, but during their years in secondary school, many young people lose the reading habit.

In this book, some French children say what they enjoy reading. Cartoons (les bandes dessinées, or BD for short) are something of a tradition in France and not just children but also a large number of adults enjoy graphic novels. The adventures of Astérix, the plucky little Gaul, are always best-sellers, as are the adventures of Tintin (whose creator was actually Belgian, not French). Japanese Manga books and comics are also a favourite genre.

Pupils can easily and quickly read this short, attractive, highly-illustrated French book for a sense of enjoyment and achievement. The book can be used to introduce children to reading in French and help them to improve their reading skills.

It strongly supports Intercultural Understanding by making a point of revealing, via the texts and the pictures, various cultural aspects of life in France or French-speaking countries. 

This book is one of six Brilliant French Information Books at Level 2.
