A Book of Coupons
It is the first day of school and the kids of Marie Curie School are getting a new teacher. Everyone arrives hoping for an athletic and handsome specimen, but instead, they find a fat, wrinkly, and incredibly old one. At first, the class is very disappointed. But then each student receives a strange gift-a book of very special coupons-and it becomes obvious that Monsieur No?l is not the kind of teacher you meet everyday. The school year is bound to be anything but ordinary. Illustrated by Serge Bloch Translated by Gill Rosner
