The idea seemed farfetched and hardly interesting, but then you get to thinking of the numerous possibilities that one could develop this story idea. I already loved Pennac, so I read, and I very much appreciated.
It's not so much the fact that kids turn into adults and vice versa that makes it interesting, it's the characters themselves. They always having the perfectly witty reply, and the way they relate to one another is more than entertaining.
One of the children involved speaks regularly to his dead father, and the discussions - contrary to what we would believe - are quite funny and fetching.
Also, the school teacher, M. Castraing, is a man who lacked childhood experiences, and is living family life as a child through the eyes (and homework assignments) of his students. This teacher is a remarkably interesting character, and the idea of getting to know him (as well as why he teaches the way he does, and why he goes to prostitutes - no, it isn't for sex) is very exciting.
The book is suspenseful and a real page-turner, as long as you like the Pennac writing style, which is comparable to none other.
A very interesting read from beginning to end, and a setting and plot you won't soon forget.
