My trip to Cannes & wot i did lurn


This weekend I have been on a nice day by the seasisde in Cannes. I saw an art extibishun about a French skoolboy called Nicolas. This is wot i lurnt-

Monsiur Sempé's first name is Jean-Jacques and he draws VERY small. He called the boy Nicolas after he saw a wine shop with this name.

Monsiur Goscinny's first name is René and he wrote about the most famous peeple in France. He wrote about Nicolas as I have said already and a French viking called Asterix and even a French cowboy called Lucky Luke. He knew them all but is dead now.

It was a very nice museeum and very intresting. I was taking lots of piktures too.

Without the shadow of a doubt I consider Sempé as the best humorist in the world.

I can't believe I missed that!!!!!! I love le petit Nicolas. When I was a kid, I had to read those books to improve my French. Not that it helped much though.... there's a reason why I live in London now :-)

agree with Oscar, Sempe is wonderful!

These originals must have been wonderful to see. Small in scale but huge in appeal. Sempe has the lightest touch...
