What is Pépites Internationales?

Pépites Internationales offers a possibility to enjoy a selection of comic books and illustrated albums especially selected for young readers.

During 2 months, students can participate in online activities organised by the Alliances françaises and meet the authors of these comics. Finally, they can become a literary critic! They also get the opportunity to vote for their favourite comics.
