The world of young Nicholas is harmonious and consistent: he has a mom, a dad, a kind schoolteacher, and the best group of friends a young boy could ask for. However, his peaceful world is shattered when his father gets promoted at work and announces that the family is moving to the South of France, which might as well be a million kilometers away from the life Nicholas knows. How will he survive without Alceste and his constant croissants, or without Clotaire and his air-headed mischief? Who around him will quote philosophers if not Agnan? And most of all, who will he play soccer with? One day, the boys stumble on a way to prevent this devastating separation—a treasure hunt. Punctuated by perky music throughout and ripe with the infectious determination of youth, LITTLE NICHOLAS’ TREASURE is a celebration of the friendships that stay with you, even in the face of separation. —J.H.
