Starting in the 18th century, literary youth publications aimed to convey moral and civic teachings to a specific audience ; they gradually gained a fixed frequency. This paper focuses on the works of Arnaud Berquin and Louis-François Jauffret, both at the origin of several series, and both noteworthy for crossing borders.
