Welcome to CollectionSylvieMademoiselle.com. It's with great excitement
and pride that I finally open the doors to this fabulous endeavor in which I've
been involved with and worked on sporadically for more then 30 years.
As a 13 year old girl back in the 1970's, I clearly remember my first encounter with Sylvie. Walking in this store close to home with Mom, I remember my eyes and fingers wondering to this circular wire display loaded with books. In total amazement I found that they were NAMED AFTER ME! Holding this bright, glossy and colorful edition in my hands, I was mesmerized. I wanted to know everything about my new friend's adventures. I mean, she was ME!! That day, I began my first serious relationship with litterature as I committed to read all of her adventures. That day awakened a new voice within my self, a love for books!
As the years passed, even at a distance, I held the essense of Sylvie close to my heart. Regularly, editions came my way and I amassed those treasures, slowly but surely. It wasn't until the year 2000 that I seriously refocussed my energies to finalize my collection. The Internet revolution made this a much easier task and suddenly I declared victory. But for some reason, it still felt incomplete. I didn't know why, but something was missing. Then, months ago, it suddenly came to me. René Philippe was missing! Who was René Philippe? Where was René Philippe? Thus, the most challenging part of this endeavor was still left to do. After months of research and contacts, I finally have enough to put the final strokes to the picture and complete the void left in this memorable adventure.
I truely want to welcome all of you to this sanctuary. For you aficionados, I hope you will enjoy revisiting this more innocent and purer part of your youth. For the newcovers, I hope you will discover why the numerous adventures of the Sylvie series once highlighted the imagination of hundred of thousands of readers around the world, this for over 50 years.
Please come again very soon!
