“When I’m grown up, I will buy myself a classroom, but just so that I can play in it.” Goscinny invented a child’s language that appealed to children and made their parents smile. Paired with Sempé’s wonderful drawings, the stories of Little Nicholas became international bestsellers and achieved the status of classics of French literature. The small schoolboy’s success was primarily based on the amazing closeness of a magical duo: Goscinny and Sempé. The two young authors created a whole universe. “Goscinny turned up with a text in which a child, Nicolas, talked about his life with his friends, who all had strange names - Rufus, Alceste, Maixent, Agnan, Clotaire - while the assistant principal was called Bouillon (Broth). We were on the way: René had hit on the right formula”, said Sempé. Little Nicolas’ first adventure was published on 29 March 1959 in Sud Ouest Dimanche. The response from the newspaper’s readership was enthusiastic. For seven years, Goscinny and Sempé brought alive Nicolas every single week, creating 222 stories in the process. They brought alive their own childhood memories through Nicolas and his friends. “Although I was never a Gaul or a cowboy, I was a child, as was Sempé, of course. The stories were inspired by his memories and my own memories, feelings rather than actual memories, such as the smell of pain au chocolat at the end of the school day, the atmosphere at playtime, all the bustle of childhood that Sempé really and truly captured”, said Goscinny.  Read less

Le Petit Nicolas

"When I grow up, I'll buy a classroom just to play in it!” For the Petit Nicolas, Goscinny invents a childish language that seduces children as much as it makes their parents smile. Combined with Sempé's marvellous drawings, these stories became an international bestsellers and became classics of our literature. The extraordinary complicity of the young author duo of Goscinny and Sempé reveals a real universe.

"Goscinny came up with a text about a child who told about his life with his friends, who all had strange names: Rufus, Alceste, Maixent, Agnan, Clotaire... The headmaster was nicknamed the Bouillon. That was it: René had found the formula", says Sempé.

The first adventure of Petit Nicolas appeared on 29 March 1959 in the newspaper Sud Ouest-Dimanche. For seven years, every week Goscinny and Sempé brought Petit Nicolas to life, writing 222 stories. Through Nicolas and his friends, they bring their own memories to life. "Sensations, more than memories: the smell of a chocolate bun when leaving school, the atmosphere of a playground, all the hustle and bustle of childhood that Sempé felt so well," Goscinny said.
