A well known broadcaster, Labro turned his attentions to writing novels and Le petit garçon traces his young life until his baccalauréat.  

The most interesting part of the autobiographical novel concerns the war years when the family was living in the south west of France;  the father a renowned lawyer had wanted to see his children grow up outside the city.

As the war unfurls we see, through a child's eyes, the mysterious comings and goings at the château;   the innocent viewpoint is particularly poignant.  

At almost 350 pages, Le petit garçon, is a challenging but rewarding read, certainly one which native speaker students could undertake with no problem.
