GUTMAN, COLAS / BOUTAVANT, MARC
"This chapter book already popular in France, where it has been made into a hit TV show is for kids who can appreciate a little more action and a lot more voice in their reading. (There's more than a hint of Lemony Snicket's dark hilarity in Gutman's writing.)" Jenny Rosenstrach, The New York Times
