Humane, humorous and deeply felt, this is a unique book about reading.

The Rights of the Reader, which has sold over a million copies in France, grew from celebrated French writer Daniel Pennac's experiences of teaching in "challenging" schools. Central to the book is his belief that readers have rights: to read what, how, where and when they want, and - if they choose - the right NOT to read. This fresh new translation combines the talents of award-winning translator Sarah Adams and renowned artist Quentin Blake, who illustrates and introduces the work.

“Perfect for every reader and non-reader”

This is a superbly delicious book that delves into the heart of a read and puts it on show for all to see (and read) while also looking out how us bookworms, parents and teachers manage to ruin the reading passions... More
