I agree that the film cannot be as good as the book, but even if it is half as good it will be a great movie.

Have the book in french and english on my wish list (would be happy with either version). In my opinion it is a book to keep and read again another time.

Am having trouble getting hold of P&P & zombies..... Evil or Very Mad Apparently it is published by a small company and they are having trouble keeping up with demand. Have my name down for a copy but was told not to hold my breath as it could be months before the bookstores here get it in again. grrr

If anyone in UK or USA sees a copy and wouldn't mind buying it for me I will reimburse the cost and postage. Merci mille fois

I would love to see Cheri for the costumes... ok, and for Michelle Pfeiffer!

I love Colette's books. Only wish there were French films of the Claudine novels.

Debbie, I will see what I can do about P&P&Z!

Griffin don't worry about the book. I'll buy it today and send it to Debbie as soon as she gives me her address through the private messages. And please don't worry about reimbursing me. I consider it my karma payback when a C&Z member sent me a copy of Clotilde's first book when I was in Iraq.

You guys are the best!

I have sent you a PM Bainst.

Griffin, I still have a book that I was going to post to you..... need to get my act together and do it. Apologies for the slackness.

Agree that it would be great if movies made of Claudine.

Those costumes are fab! Thanks for the link. Michelle Pfeiffer looks great in anything.... sigh

Claudine at School has had several French film adaptations.

Claudine à l'école (1917)
Claudine à l'école (1937)
Claudine à l'école (1978 - made for TV)

Debbie,

Not a problem, I am reading a lot at the moment anyway!! Just finished a fabulous 'Victorian' style thriller called The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters by GW Dahlquist. I am now on the sequel, The Dark Volume.

Cigalechanta,

Those are fabulous costumes, Michelle is very lucky to wear so much silk! She looks so lovely too... sigh! I would love to see those versions of Claudine à l'école. It's a shame they didn't do the others as well. Maybe, just maybe the Cheri movie will mean a revival of Colette and the films will be made.

I saw the shorts for Le Herisson. It looks very good.

I have my fingers crossed.

The young girl in the movie is exactly as I pictured her when reading the book. THe concierge also was pretty much as I imagined she would look.

Youpee!!!! I have the book.

By the time I had reached the bus stop had already read the first chapter. It is hilarious!!!!!!

I was giggling out loud and had to put it away so I wouldn't get travel sick, but am about to devour it along with my lunch.

Thank you thank you thank you
