L'Alphabet de A à Zen
Author: Jean-François Mattéi
Publisher: Editions Publibook
La langue française a la réputation d’être difficile, et les Français d’être... incompréhensibles. Voici donc vingt-six mots essentiels de la langue de Molière, classés de A à Zen, à l’usage des étrangers pour les aider à surmonter leurs difficultés à communiquer avec les Français. Vin, congés, table, grève, retraite, week-end, baratin... Vingt-six termes indispensables et nécessaires, vingt-six mots-clés suffisants pour comprendre le Français de « base ». Ni plus ni moins... Caustique et amusant, ce petit bréviaire ravira tous les amateurs de bons mots et les adeptes des petites phrases qui font mouche. Amoureux de la langue et des mots, Jean-François Mattei réduit à sa plus simple expression la civilisation française et ses travers, sa tendance à l’autosatisfaction et à la fanfaronnade. Car derrière le jeu et l’ironie, c’est avant tout une certaine idée de la France qu’il souhaite nous faire partager.

The Man Who Planted Trees
Author: Jean Giono, Michael McCurdy
Publisher: Chelsea Green Publishing
Twenty years ago Chelsea Green published the first trade edition of The Man Who Planted Trees, a timeless eco-fable about what one person can do to restore the earth. The hero of the story, Elzéard Bouffier, spent his life planting one hundred acorns a day in a desolate, barren section of Provence in the south of France. The result was a total transformation of the landscape-from one devoid of life, with miserable, contentious inhabitants, to one filled with the scent of flowers, the songs of birds, and fresh, flowing water. Since our first publication, the book has sold over a quarter of a million copies and inspired countless numbers of people around the world to take action and plant trees. On National Arbor Day, April 29, 2005, Chelsea Green released a special twentieth anniversary edition with a new foreword by Wangari Maathai, winner of the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize and founder of the African Green Belt Movement.
