Originally published in French as “Le petit Nicolas et les copains,” this companion volume to “Nicholas,” a 2006 Batchelder Honor Book, presents the further hilarious escapades of a schoolboy and his classmates in an all-boys school. Sempé's jaunty pen-and-ink artwork extends the energy of the text. Brief, fresh, and funny, the Nicholas stories have been favorites among French schoolchildren for nearly 50 years.
