THE RECENTLY DISCOVERED DR. SEUSS BOOK IN A FUN, LEARN-TO-READ FRENCH TRANSLATION

Publié sous le titre original What Pet Should I Get?, voici un album inédit du Dr Seuss, ouvrage qui n'avait jamais été publié et vient d'être découvert. La traduction française reproduit fidèlement ce charmant album plein de rythme et de rimes. Choisir une p'tite bête, quel casse-tête ! raconte l'histoire de deux enfants qui vont acheter leur animal de compagnie, et l'heure du choix est bien compliquée. Avec sa drôlerie et sa fantaisie inimitables, le Dr Seuss raconte combien il est parfois difficile de choisir. Ce livre pour les enfants est un excellent outil pour apprendre le français tout en s'amusant, à travers cette petite histoire à la fois cocasse et captivante, proche de ce que vivent les enfants.

They find the boy by the swimming pool, dolls floating on its surface.

Inside the house, his teacher lies dead.

But he claims to remember nothing...

June 2010. In the middle of a World Cup match, Martin Servaz receives a call from a long-lost lover. A few miles away in the town of Marsac, Classics professor Claire Diemar has been brutally murdered.

As if that weren't disturbing enough, Servaz receives a cryptic e-mail indicating that Julian Hirtmann, the most twisted of all serial killers, is back...and hitting a little too close to home. With death and chaos surrounding the small university town in Southern France where he was once a student and where his daughter is now enrolled, Servaz must act quickly.

With the help of detectives Irene Ziegler and Esperandieu, Servaz will have to uncover a world of betrayal and depravity to connect the dots between these gruesome murders that keep re-opening wounds from his past. After the success of The Frozen Dead, Bernard Minier plunges readers once again into a perfectly constructed, dark and oppressive atmosphere, driven foreward by a gripping plot, pushing the limits of the genre.

Winner of the Prix Goncourt (France), the Leipzig Prize (Germany), Premio Von Rezzori (Italy), shortlisted for the 2017 International Man Booker Prize, shortlisted for the Dublin Literary Award

As night falls over Vienna, Franz Ritter, an insomniac musicologist, takes to his sickbed with an unspecified illness and spends a restless night drifting between dreams and memories, revisiting the important chapters of his life: his ongoing fascination with the Middle East and his numerous travels to Istanbul, Aleppo, Damascus, and Tehran, as well as the various writers, artists, musicians, academics, orientalists, and explorers who populate this vast dreamscape. At the center of these memories is his elusive, unrequited love, Sarah, a fiercely intelligent French scholar caught in the intricate tension between Europe and the Middle East.

With exhilarating prose and sweeping erudition, Mathias Énard pulls astonishing elements from disparate sources--nineteenth-century composers and esoteric orientalists, Balzac and Agatha Christie--and binds them together in a most magical way.

Le 27 octobre 1949, le nouvel avion d'Air France, le Constellation, lance par l'extravagant M. Howard Hughes, accueille trente-sept passagers. Le 28 octobre, l'avion ne repond plus a la tour de controle. Il a disparu en descendant sur l'ile Santa Maria, dans l'archipel des Acores. Aucun survivant. La question que pose Adrien Bosc dans cet ambitieux premier roman n'est pas tant comment, mais pourquoi ? Quel est l'enchainement d'infimes causalites qui, mises bout a bout, ont precipite l'avion vers le mont Redondo ? Quel est le hasard objectif, notion chere aux surrealistes, qui rend necessaire ce tombeau d'acier ? Et qui sont les passagers ? Si l'on connait Marcel Cerdan, l'amant boxeur d'Edith Piaf, si l'on se souvient de cette musicienne prodige que fut Ginette Neveu, dont une partie du violon sera retrouvee des annees apres, l'auteur lie les destins entre eux. Entendre les morts, ecrire leur legende minuscule et offrir a quarantehuit hommes et femmes, comme autant de constellations, vie et recit.

    Things put underground in New Orleans don't often stay there. Even things that should - like bodies, and secrets.

    How do you fight an enemy you can't see that can kill on a whim? In 1820s New Orleans, on the eve of her twenty-first birthday, Zéolie Cheval discovers the mangled body of her father murdered in his bed and a maniacal voice haunting the recesses of her mind. When the priest sent to comfort her is killed while the house is swarming with police, Zéolie becomes entangled in a web of mystery that takes her from the French Quarter, to the Ursuline Convent in the Ninth Ward, and deep into the Louisiana swamps.

    Officer Louis Saucier, who is losing his heart to Zéolie and his grip on logical reality, helps her find the pieces to her puzzle. The mother superior of the Ursulines offers assistance from a mediumistic nun and a voodoo priestess, blurring the lines between the spiritual and the supernatural.

    After opening the family crypt to find it uninhabited, Zéolie realizes that her father lied about her mother's death - amongst other things. Now, Zéolie must come to terms with magic she inherited from her grandmother and the price that comes with it.

    Step inside the magic and mystery of the 1820s French Quarter to see if an unlikely menagerie can help Zéolie take down a murderous maniac while she shields the officer she loves. Can she harness powers she didn't know she had? Or, will she make the ultimate sacrifice?

    The crew of a French reconnaissance plane during WW1 consisted of just two men: a pilot and an observer. Two such men are Jean Herbillon and Claude Maury. Herbillon's dreams of glory as an air ace have been dashed after only a few months at the front; Maury suffers from a broken heart--his only hope is that his exploits as a pilot will win back his lost love. Together the two form one of the best crews in the air, fighting in the first aerial conflict in history--one in which a combatant can count his life expectancy in weeks. The pressure of war forges a strong bond between the two flyers, but can it survive the discovery that they are both in love with the same woman?

    Joseph Kessel's autobiographical novel is a staggering tale of courage, brotherhood and loss.
