"Nicholas is the first of five books that bring to life 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 as home and his touchingly naive reaction to situations, cut through the preconceptions of adults and result in a formidable sequence of escapades"--Publisher website (June 2007)

Moving through the landscape in silent haste, like a man possessed, with his empty rucksack and his long, odd-looking walking stick, Mr Sommer runs like a black thread through the boys days

Everything is complicated by Sempé( Book )

26 editions published between 1962 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean-Jacques Sempe's witty drawings and keen eye for the finer points of the human condition have delighted readers in France and beyond for over forty years. Now, his sharply observed and beautifully drawn cartoons are available in English for the first time." "In 'Everything is Complicated', first published in 1963, a number of Sempe's favourite subjects are already clearly in evidence, such as mild-mannered men and women with colourful inner lives and people who choose to express themselves through the medium of the protest sign. There are also cartoons about hapless tourists, pipe-smoking novelists and unruly schoolchildren. Sempe is equally adept at capturing the little indignities (and triumphs) of everyday life as he is at high farce and physical comedy. The captions were translated by Anthea Bell, who also helped to bring Asterix the Gaul to the English-speaking world."--Jacket
Monsieur Lambert by Sempé( Book )

25 editions published between 1965 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Monsieur Lambert is a gentle, and unmistakably French, graphic novel with text and pictures by one of the world's best-loved illustrators. Jean-Jacques Sempe offers a glimpse of the everyday lives and secret passions of the regulars in a small Parisian bistro. When Monsieur Lambert does not turn up for lunch at his usual time, the other regulars speculate that he must have met a woman. How else can they explain his strange new behaviour? The diners start discussing women they have loved and lost and, in doing so, they reveal unexpected facets of their own lives and personalities." "The restaurant and its regulars are brought to life vividly in a series of drawings which, together with handwritten dialogue and a laconic commentary, display Sempe's signature unerring eye and ear for the telling details of human behaviour. The text was translated from French by award-winning translator Anthea Bell."--Jacket
