Le petit Nicolas versus Horrid Henry
I think it is interesting to see that the English have their own petit Nicolas. Naughty boys are probably an interesting subject to read about for children. This year my pupils had to read Le petit Nicolas. Though the used language is old and very difficult to read all the boys agreed that the book was very funny. The main reason why they loved reading it? Because Nicolas and his classmates are fighting most of the time and causing lots of trouble. The girls did not like reading this story, because it reminded them too much of the irritating boys in their class. I am wondering if the episodes of Horrid Henry could be used for reading in class.
