Description

Nicholas in Trouble contains 16 new stories about Nicholas and his friends. In this collection of adventures, things are never easy for Nicholas and his gang: the lady in the shop won't let them buy chocolate, their teacher won't let them play Geoffrey's fantastic new game, and Jeremy is none to pleased about his new little brother. Following on from the publication of Nicholas, Nicholas Again, Nicholas on Holiday and Nicholas and the Gang, this is the equally funny and charming fifth title in this well-loved series of books, now available to English-speaking children all over the world. Firmly established as a literary cult figure, the sublimely innocent Nicholas has already charmed millions of readers world-wide since these books were first published in France over forty years ago. Considered classics, the Nicholas stories delight both children and adults.show more

About Rene Goscinny

Jean-Jacques Sempe (b.1932) is one of the world's most successful illustrators and cartoonists. He is the illustrator of the classic children's-book character, Nicholas, and author of a collection of some thirty albums of his cartoons and graphic novels, all published or to be published by Phaidon. His world-renowned illustrations and cartoons are featured on the cover of the New Yorker and in Paris Match. Rene Goscinny (1926-77), born in Paris, lived most of his early years in Buenos Aires and New York. He returned to France in the 1950s where he met Jean-Jacques Sempe and together they created the character for Nicholas, the famous schoolboy. He later worked with Alberto Uderzo, on making the adventures of Asterix the Gaul. A prolific and internationally successful children's author, he is also the creater of Lucky Luke and Dingodossiers, among others. He also received Cesars for his numerous animated cartoons.show more
