I am always looking around for good French series books, so this weekend, I decided to try "Flavia," which is part of the series "La famille trop d'filles" by Susie Morgenstern. This series is about a family with 7 children, 6 of whom are girls. Each book focuses on a different girl in the family.
"Flavia" was a quick read. The vocabulary was fairly easy, and the story was simple and entertaining. Flavia is the youngest girl in the family, and for most of the book, she is in a bad mood because she doesn't like school and just wants to be left alone. She never learned how to read properly but doesn't really care, until an important letter is delivered to her and she finally asks her sisters for help.
The illustrations in the book are colorful and lively. Flavia's pouffy orange hair seems to jump off the page!
