Abstract:

Set in a small town in southwestern France, Le Petit Garcon is the endearing story of a boy's coming-of-age during World War II. The youngest of seven children, who record the crucial events and comical characters in their lives in a hallowed family album - whether it's Furbaire, who rolled his r's, Michigot with his wig, or Dr. Sucre with his bicycle clips - the little boy quickly learns the importance of compassion in an increasingly intolerant world. As the Nazis.

Occupy the provinces, the little boy's home becomes a safe house for Jewish refugees. There are rumors of deportations, chilling cases of collaboration, heroic stories of the Resistance, and the grisly evidence of reprisals. Through the remarkable example of his father, the little boy comes to distinguish right from wrong, good from evil, and to appreciate the need for thought in action and for experience as the criterion of judgment. A tender, warmhearted novel about a.

Young boy's moral awakening, Le Petit Garcon memorably captures the essence and struggle of a small town in war-torn France.
