This collection of stories by Marc Thil are great for intermediate students of French or even more advanced students as reinforcement. I read it on the Kindle app for iPad with the download of the French dictionary to check meanings and shades of meaning. With this nifty device, even an ambitious more advanced beginner could handle them without much trouble. Of course the stories have to be well written and entertaining to hold the readers attention. This collection, written for young Native French readers from 8 years up, fulfills that requirement. I plan to read others by the author.
