Wonderful simply told story of an unburdened childhood in the Provence, written by a member of the French Academy

If French is your second language there is frequently a mountain to climb when reading a whole book. Not in this case. Pagnol writes with such clarity that the story is a delight to read whatever your level of French. ( )
