le genius

Thanks to the charming blog of Ben Clanton for the discovery of this very clever and inspiring sequence of credits for Le Petit Nicolas. The film was made several years ago (2009) and based on the books by René Goscinny with illustrations by the great Jean-Jacques Sempé (here is a tiny sample of his work – he loves bicycles). How had I not watched this bit of film before? But that’s the beauty of the internet – so much to discover anew.

By the way, Ben Clanton’s new picture book Vote For Me!, on electoral politics of all things, looks charming and has been well reviewed. I’m looking forward to reading it.
