Inhaltsangabe: Absurd fairy tales, very sensibly told There once was a good little devil - did you read that right? Yes you did: not a wicked little devil but a good one, and boy, was he in a fix! Instead of doing bad things like forgetting his homework and playing tricks on his teachers, this little devil kept trying to be good. He did all his homework - and sometimes enjoyed it! He was never rude and he even encouraged sinners to say sorry. His parents were at their wits' end. So the little devil struck out on his own. On his quest to learn to be good, our little devil meets all kinds of people, from priests to police and from the Pope in Rome to Little Jesus himself. But will the angels let a little red devil with black horns into Heaven? In these thirteen tales, clever young people find nifty ways to overcome greedy kings, wicked witches, unlucky spells and even silly names. And there's a big dash of magic to help them on the way! About the Author Pierre Gripari, the French-Greek author, dubbed 'a Martian in exile', was one the most successful writers for children in twentieth-century France and a prolific author for adult and children. The stories in The Good Little Devil and Other Tales are his most famous. About the Illustrator Puig Rosado is an award-winning illustrator famous in France and elsewhere in Europe for his children's books, press cartoons and posters.
