I'm preparing for the summer holidays and want to find some good enjoyable French books for my ten-yr-old dd to read.
She is tri-lingual and French is her least favourite language (atm!! - hoping this will change over time) but she loves reading, so want to encourage her French-language skills through some really enjoyable literature.
The books should be written in good French but enjoyable at the same time ifyswim!
Film/DVD recommendations also appreciated!
Any ideas please? I haven't a clue for this age group!
My 10 year old and some of his classmates are enjoying Le Manoir trilogy by Evelyne Brisou-Pellen and seem to be enjoying them. They also really loved La Maison de 50 portes by the same author. We met her at a book fair and she's written loads of books. Both DCs and their French friends seem to love her books but she is local to us and I think they have some interaction with her.
In class they seem to read a lot of Roald Dahl translations.
"Le petit Nicolas" Series = funny "Le Roman de la momie" T. Gautier classic great adventure Jules Vernes may be "voyage au centre de la terre" to start with? La contesse de segur (old fashion but plenty to chose from with different level of reading) "Arsene Lupin" Series "poil de carotte" Classic about bullying "la guerre des boutons" classic too about children running wild during the war If she is not v. good at reading in french may be some easier books like "Le club des 5" all the original Enid Blyton ones plus 24 or 26 more written by a french author. Fantomette series in the same vein. Children versions of A. Dumas (don't go for the originals they are quite difficult if her comprehension is not so good)
