Summary Drawing on his experiences as a child, a parent, and an inner-city teacher in Paris, Pennac reflects on the power of story and on how we learn to read--what helps us and what gets in the way. He reminds us of our right to read anything, anywhere, at any time, as long as we are enjoying ourselves.
