What I Read When I Was Growing Up in Belgium

Sometimes, when people are talking about classic books from their childhoods – Anne of Green Gables, say, or Charlotte’s Web – I stay very quiet. I haven’t read a lot of those, and I wish I had. I shouldn’t feel ashamed, though, because there’s a good reason I  haven’t. I grew up in French-speaking Brussels in the ’80s and we had a whole different set of children’s classics.
