"Joyful ode to reading...quirky, playful sketches to complement the author's engaging prose. Passionate and witty." — BOOKLIST

First published in 1992 and even more relevant now, Daniel Pennac's quirky ode to reading has sold more than a million copies in his native France. Drawing on his experiences as a child, a parent, and an inner-city teacher in Paris, the author reflects on the power of story and reminds us of our right to read anything, anywhere, anytime, so long as we are enjoying ourselves. In a new translation with a foreword and illustrations by Quentin Blake, here is a guide to reading unlike any other: fresh,
sympathetic, and never didactic, it is a work of literature in its own right.

About the Author:

Daniel Pennac, the author of EYE OF THE WOLF and DOG, is one of the most translated authors in France, with books for both adults and children appearing in more than thirty languages. He lives in Paris.

Sarah Adams is the award-winning translator of Daniel Pennac's EYE OF THE WOLF.

Quentin Blake has illustrated some three hundred books, including ON ANGEL WINGS by Michael Morpurgo, MICHAEL ROSEN'S SAD BOOK, and many titles by Roald Dahl. He lives in London.

From Booklist:

First published in 1992, this new translation of French author Pennac’s joyful ode to reading features an introduction by illustrator Quentin Blake, who also contributes quirky, playful sketches to complement the author’s engaging prose. Passionate and witty, Pennac draws upon his experiences as a child, parent, and inner-city teacher in Paris to espouse insightful declarations and reflections about the power of story. Pennac criticizes parents who do not nourish the enthusiasm their children have for reading, chastises educators who suck out the joy of the written word, and laments how our consumer culture reduces the book to a mere product—and he manages to do all of this without sounding didactic. Pennac closes the book by elaborating on his well-known 10 “rights of the reader.” Interest in this book among teens is likely to be limited, but those who share Pennac’s passion for reading will find it affirming. Grades 9-12. --Ed Sullivan
