Nic Oumouk, a street urchin from “an immigrant background and a family at risk” (according to the social worker), has a few problems in his neighborhood. The first problem is Edukator, the annoying masked hero who fights illiteracy by punishing Nic when he makes spelling mistakes in his graffiti. The second problem is Yannick Noah, chief of the local protection racket, who has decided to initiate Nic into the ways of juvenile delinquence.
“POLICE = PIG” — that’s Nic’s graffiti tag. Says Edukator: “‘Police’ is a collective noun! It’s not just one pig, they’re all pigs, so you must put ‘pigs’ in the plural.” Nic Oumouk is a street kid — he looks more like a baseball cap and sunglasses with feet — who lives a life of day-to-day adventures in a neighborhood referred to as “troubled,” […***]. Resolutely optimistic, afraid of nothing and a little foolish from time to time, Nic is an irresistible new hero, surrounded by characters more true to life than life itself. Moving and formidably funny, the series is for all audiences, aimed at readers aged 10 and up.
