Chlorophylle et les Conspirateurs
Christmas Day 1962 I awoke find a Santa sack of toys and one strange new book, it was in French, full of colour and wonder.
My father had picked up on the fact that I loved Tales of the Riverbank a series on British TV and typically gave me a puzzle to solve. I was 7 years of age set about deciphering the language code by matching up the pictures, characters, actions and whole story.
Thus began my first foray into Foreign Languages.
