♦ Description : “The wonderful dialogue of a child and a wolf with extraordinary destinies … In a zoo, a child and an old one-eyed wolf fix themselves, eye in eye. All the life of the wolf scrolls in the back of his eye: a wild life in Alaska, a species threatened by men. The eye of the child tells the story of a little African who has traveled all over Africa to survive, and who has a precious gift: to tell stories that make you laugh and dream.”

Authors Biography

“Daniel Pennac is a French writer who has tried every field: essays, children’s books, poles, novels, theater, film script … and in all, he has won a great success and many awards. But before getting into writing, like everyone else he was first at school where he was not very good. That did not stop him from becoming a teacher and having a long career in teaching. Now retired, he devotes himself exclusively to his pen.

Biography

“Daniel Pennac”

Catherine Reisser, the illustrator, draws first because she loves children. Interior designer, decorator, painter, she says herself that she “a little touched everything” before starting to illustrate books for the youth at the birth of his son. Catherine Reisser also illustrated Cabot-Caboche.

Daniel Pennacchioni, known as Daniel Pennac, is a French writer. His father is a soldier. The family follows him in his travels abroad and in France, especially in the village of La Colle-sur-Loup, in the Alpes-Maritimes. These more or less romanticized versions of his academic difficulties did not prevent him from obtaining his bachelor’s degree and then a master’s degree in literature from Nice. His studies of letters lead him to teaching, from 1969 to 1995, in college and then in high school. He worked as a taxi driver and illustrator, before becoming in 1969 professor of secondary literature first at St. Paul College in Soissons, then in Nice, and finally in Paris. He taught there notably private high school Paul-Claudel d’Hulst.

His first book, written in 1973 after his military service, is a pamphlet that attacks the great myths that constitute the essence of the national service, “Military service in whose service?”. He becomes Daniel Pennac, changing his name so as not to harm his father.

In 1979, Daniel Pennac made a two-year stay in Brazil, which will be the source of a novel published twenty-three years later: “The Dictator and the Hammock” (2003).
In the Black Series, he published in 1985, “Au bonheur des ogres”, the first part of the saga of the Malaussène tribe. He diversifies his audience with another tetralogy for children, “An adventure of Kamo” (1992) featuring heroes close to the child universe, concerned about school and friendship.
To these fictions are added other types of books: an essay on reading, “Like a novel” (1992), two books in collaboration with the photographer Robert Doisneau and “La débauche”, a comic book, with Jacques Tardi (2000).

“Grief of School”, a book holding the essay and autobiography published in October 2007 at Gallimard, received the Renaudot prize the same year. With “My brother” (2018), a hymn to love for his departed elder, Daniel Pennac delivers a poignant intimate story.

A great lover of audiobooks, he himself has recorded several of his books for Gallimard and the Lire dans le noir association. And on stage, after performing “Merci” at the Rond-Point theater, he reads Bartleby the scribe at the Nursery Theater. Daniel Pennac has written or co-authored several screenplays for film or television, sometimes adapting his own books. He lives in Paris with his second wife, the writer Véronique M. Le Normand.”

Description : During a sweltering East Texas summer, 13-year-old Stanley Mitchel Jr. begins a journey of awakening. His family runs the town's drive-in movie theater, where Stanley spends his time helping out, reading ten-cent comics, playing with his dog Nub and generally living a boy's life, circa 1958. When Stanley discovers a cache of old love-letters and starts to unravel a local mystery, however, he finds himself confronting secrets of ghosts, women, sex, race and his own courage. As he tells it, "I felt as if something living inside of me had been stolen, taken away and mistreated, then returned without all of its legs." Ultimately, it's a story about taking a clear-eyed look behind the veil and acknowledging the truth of things, without succumbing to them. "A Fine Dark Line" written by Joe R.

Description : Find out all about the first Britons, nomadic hunter-gatherers who came from mainland Europe to settle in England bringing wooden spears, flint handaxes and animals with them. Stone Age to Iron Age tells the story of how these people settled and began farming the land. They built villages of timber and stone houses such as Skara Brae on Orkney. Stonehenge is perhaps the most famous monument of this period, a technological marvel of the time built by raising over 80 blue stones to create the 'henge'. The Bronze Age bought with it metalworking using copper, tin and gold to make tools and beautiful everyday objects. The Iron Age was known for its hill forts, farming and art and culture. Contains maps, paintings, artefacts and photographs to show how early Britons lived. Ideally suited for readers age 8+ or teachers who are looking for books to support the new curriculum for 2014.

Description : A potent novel about lost youth and migration by the author of The Last Brother and Waiting for Tomorrow Marie, a nurse in Mayotte, a far-flung, tropical department of France in the Indian Ocean, adopts a baby abandoned at birth by his mother, a refugee from Comoros. She names him Moïse and raises him as her own—and she avoids his increasing questions about his origins as he grows up. When Marie suddenly dies, thirteen-year-old Moïse is left completely alone, plunged into uncertainty and turmoil. In a state of panic, he runs away from home, and sets himself on a collision course with the gangs of Gaza, the largest and most infamous slum on the island. Nathacha Appanah has deftly assembled a small chorus of voices who narrate the heartbreak, violence, and injustice of life in Mayotte. To Marie’s and Moïse’s perspectives she adds those of Bruce, a terrifying gang leader; Olivier, a police officer fighting a losing battle; and Stéphane, the naïve aid worker whose efforts to help Moïse only make him more vulnerable. Tropic of Violence shines a powerful light on the particular deprivation and isolation in this forgotten and neglected part of France. At the same time, it is a moving portrayal of the desperation and inequality that are driving refugee crises across the world, and of the innocent children whose lives are being torn apart in their wake. This is a remarkable, unsettling new novel from one of the most exciting voices in world literature.
