Nicholas on Holiday is the third book in the acclaimed series of classic and much-loved stories about the endearing exploits of the cheeky French schoolboy, Nicholas. All the stories in this volume take place by the sea, during the summer holidays. There are eventful fishing trips, treasure hunts in the middle of the night and a whole new gang of friends with whom Nicholas can get into trouble.

Firmly established as a literary cult figure, the sublimely innocent Nicholas has already charmed millions of readers world-wide since these books were first published over forty years ago. Considered classics and available in twenty-six languages, the Nicholas stories delight both children and adults. Nicholas on Holiday contains eighteen new stories, all of which take place during the long summer break from school. An only child, Nicholas's touchingly naive reaction to situations is often at odds with that of the adults around him. Whether he's staying at a seaside hotel with his parents or making new friends at a holiday camp for children, Nicholas's efforts to keep himself and his gang amused, even when it's raining outside, always result in unexpected and delightful chaos.
