Looking for French books for kids that tweens and young teens will love?" "Tired of children's books in French that are serious, preachy or dull? Then try..." Le Jour ou je me suis lave la figure dans la cuvette A laugh-out-loud French book perfect for girls and young teens! All 14-year-old Monica Bloomfield wants is to spend August at a science camp far away from her idiot sister and weird little brother. Trouble is, Monica's being dragged into the wedding party of her crabby old great aunt who lives in England-and if she wants to earn that science camp, she has to keep her siblings in line for the entire trip, plus convince her crazy Grandma to move into a nursing home pronto. Monica's determined to succeed, but things start out badly-and go downhill fast. First, her hyperactive brother overdoses on caffeine right before their eight-hour flight to England. Then a botched wine-tasting party ends so badly that even a policeman is left speechless (and in need of a new uniform). Getting into science camp isn't going to be easy-especially with a rampaging bull, drunk parrot and the most gorgeous guy in the universe standing in her way. "Le Jour ou je me suis lave la figure dans la cuvette" is a fast-paced tale about a girl trying to have a positive impact on her world and see social injustices corrected-with hilarious results, and one badly-mangled bridesmaid's dress.
En Francais! Tout ce que veut Monica Bloomfield, a 14 ans, c'est passer le mois d'aout dans un camp de vacances scientifique loin de sa s ur idiote et de son petit frere bizarroide. Le probleme est que Monica est obligee d'assister au mariage de sa vieille grand-tante grincheuse qui habite en Angleterre et que, si elle tient vraiment a ce sejour scientifique, elle doit assurer la bonne conduite de ses frere et s ur pendant tout le voyage, et en outre persuader sa grand-mere farfelue de s'installer sans plus attendre dans une maison de retraite. Monica est bien resolue a parvenir a ses fins, mais les choses commencent mal et ne font vite qu'empirer. D'abord, son petit frere hyperactif fait une overdose de cafeine juste avant le vol de huit heures vers l'Angleterre. Une autre fois, une soiree de degustation de vin mal concue se termine si mal qu'un policier en reste muet d'incredulite (et ayant besoin d'un nouvel uniforme). Aller au camp scientifique ne sera pas une sinecure pour Monica, surtout a cause d'un taureau dechaine, d'un perroquet enivre et du plus superbe mec du monde entier, sur son chemin. From The Author: Unfortunately, I came up with the title of this book the day I washed my face in a toilet. In my defense, we were living in the middle of nowhere, and a brutal storm had left us with no hydro, no heat, no lights and no running water for almost a week. I was cold and grimy, and by the fifth day I snapped. I pulled the top off the toilet tank and peered in. The water had been sitting there for days, so it smelled really funky. Also, every chain and bobbly thing in there was covered with a thick layer of (and here, I'm using the scientific term) bleck. Still, I was desperate. So I used the slimy toilet tank water and had what was probably the fastest sponge bath on record. Sadly, the curry incident happened to me, too. Shortly before I boarded an eight-hour flight from England to Canada, a friend took me out for a huge curry feast. I'd never had curry, and my intestines weren't sure what to do with the stuff, so they promptly rejected it and I developed explosive curry farts. This book is a labor of love-but it's laced with some of my most cringe-worthy experiences, too!
