Following on from the publication of Nicholas, Nicholas Again
is the equally beguiling second title in this well-loved series of
books, now available to English-speaking children all over the world.
Firmly established as a literary cult figure, the sublimely innocent
Nicholas has already charmed millions of readers world-wide since these
books were first published over forty years ago. Considered classics
and available in twenty-six languages, the Nicholas stories have the
ability to delight both children and adults. They are also regularly
used as teaching materials by primary and junior school teachers.
contains seventeen riotously funny escapades. An only child, Nicholas's
touchingly naive reaction to situations is often at odds with that of
the adults around him. The results are calamitous: in the school room,
at home or out and about, the exuberance of Nicholas and his friends
often takes over. Whether helping to organise a school newspaper, going
fishing in the public gardens, or discovering how to enjoy a visit to
the art gallery, Nicholas's efforts always brings delightful mayhem.
