Little Nicholas

  1. Overview
  2. Fact Sheet

Somewhere, between Montmartre and Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Jean-Jacques Sempé and René Goscinny lean over a large white sheet of paper and bring to life a mischievous and endearing boy, Little Nicholas. From schoolyard games and fights, to summer camp pranks and camaraderie, Nicholas lives a merry and enriching childhood. As Nicholas and his friends' adventures unfold, the boy sneaks into his creators' workshop and light-heartedly questions them. Sempé and Goscinny will recount the story of their friendship and careers, and reveal their childhoods filled with hopes and dreams.
