Le Petit Nicolas (French Edition) (Folio)
1.  Le Petit Nicolas (French Edition) (Folio) by Sempé

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (46 customer reviews)

Les Cigares Du Pharaon = Cigars of the Pharaoh (Tintin) (French Edition)
2.  Les Cigares Du Pharaon = Cigars of the Pharaoh (Tintin) (French Edition) by Herge
The list author says:
  "Ok, so not really a novel, but the images give a great context for the new vocabulary.  Nothing like Marvel, the stories are historical mystery adventures.  Read all of them."

5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Le Petit Prince (French Language Edition)
3.  Le Petit Prince (French Language Edition) by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

$7.13   Used & New from: $1.37
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (277 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Asterix le Gaulois (French Edition of Asterix the Gaul)
4.  Asterix le Gaulois (French Edition of Asterix the Gaul) by Rene de Goscinny
The list author says:
  "More challenging comics than Tintin, but no less enjoyable.  Set during roman times, one Gaulic village resists the romans thanks to a magic potion.  Uproariously funny. Read the series."
$29.95   Used & New from: $21.00

Harry Potter a l'ecole des sorciers
5.  Harry Potter a l'ecole des sorciers by J. K. Rowling
The list author says:
  "Hey, why not?  It's easier to ease into your first full novel in french with something you've already read. If you don't like Harry, try any young adult novel you've read. Most popular series have been translated."

Pocket Oxford Hachette French Dictionary
9.  Pocket Oxford Hachette French Dictionary by Marie-Hélène Corréard

Contrastes: Grammaire du français courant
10.  Contrastes: Grammaire du français courant by Denise Rochat
The list author says:
  "My favorite French grammar. It's spiral bound, very clearly laid out, and has small review exercises in text to make you apply the point. It covers common and uncommon mistakes and exceptions. Not for beginners as most explanations are in French. Use the index to look up unfamiliar  phrases and formations."
Used & New from: $0.01
