4) "Prince Charlie un peu... beaucoup... à la folie" by Angelika Glitz and Annette Swoboda

This is the story of a goat who looks for a partner but can't see anything because he hasn't put his glasses on... As many fight to win his affection, who will win his heart? It is an amusing and original story which is suitable for older primary children, young secondary pupils or native speakers.

You can also tell the children about what we do in France with "pâquerettes": "Il/Elle m'aime... un peu... beaucoup... passionnément... à la folie... pas du tout..." (like "he loves me/he loves me not but with more options!)
