Mighty Cheeky is the Petit Futé

Petit Futé is a French publisher of guide books that are naturally in French (with a few in ‘anglais’. They publish guide books on just about everything and everywhere. They are one of the few companies that I’ve seen publish a wide range of books on Africa. And I’m not just talking about an Egypt or Morocco book. No, they publish one on Congo, which is a rare thing to find.
Amongst their typical guides, there are a few edgier ones. Well, maybe edgy by American standards anyways and no, it’s not the gay section that I’m talking about. It’s the ‘naturist’ and the ‘naughty’ books that push the envelope a bit more. But hey, if someone wants that in a holiday, let them have it and in book form no less.
The think that earns Petit Futé the truly cheeky label is that after looking around their store in Paris, I got the distinct impression that any book they are a little concerned about selling a lot of copies of, gets a hot girl on the cover. Case in point is Serbia. Very cheeky indeed. You see this as well with Ukraine and naturally Norway. Then oddly enough, Siberia gets a train. Not sure what’s up with that. There are a lot hotter things out in Siberia than the Express.
I hear that they’re good guides, although as I found out, I speak absolutely no French, so I have to take the word of those who do.
