From NECTFL Review #62 (Spring/Summer) These editions are meant to provide students with a smooth transition from the study of language to the study of literature. As a matter of fact, they oftentimes provide a bridge that leads imperceptibly from one to the other (this is particularly true in the case of L'enfant noir, the story of a boy's youth told with meticulous contextualization, considerable repetition, and constant rephrasing - characteristic techniques of the oral storytelling tradition)... [T]he Focus Student Edition of L'enfant noir is currently the best available. It has great merit. AP and non-AP teachers of Francophone literature should not hesitate to adopt it. - J. Vincent H. Morrissette, Fairfield University
