This article points out three features which characterise contemporary French Children's Literature: a respect for the tradition, a taste for subversiveness and breaking with myths, and finally the creation of new languages and patterns as an inspiration source for the latest works. The translator hence has to recreate all these complex tendencies, of which the creation of new language is considered by the author as the most challenging.
