Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Daniel Pennac (real name Daniel Pennacchioni, born 1944 in Casablanca, French Morocco) is a French writer. He received the Prix Renaudot in 2007 for his essay Chagrin d' cole. After studying in Nice he became a teacher. He began to write for children and then wrote his book series "La Saga Malauss ne," that tells the story of Benjamin Malauss ne, a scapegoat, and his family in Belleville, Paris. In a 1997 piece for Le Monde, Pennac stated that Malauss ne was the son of Jerome Charyn's New York detective Isaac Sidel. His writing style can be humorous and imaginative like in "La Saga Malauss ne," but he can also write "Comme un roman," a pedagogic essay. His Comic D bauche, written jointly with Jacques Tardi, treats the topic of unemployment, revealing his social preoccupations.show more
