French Book Recommandations, sil vous plait!

Bonjour!

I've been working on French for a while, mainly through Mango Languages. I do read a lot, and I started attempting to read the first Harry Potter in French. I am very familiar with Harry, so I thought to try something where I would know what was going on, even if I didn't know much French...immersion, you know. Anyway, does anyone have any good book recommandations? Preferably, a book that was written originally in French, not translated. Also, please not books that have excessive cursing (preferably as little as possible) and also, a 'clean' book. Not with explicit scenes, excessive flirting or flirting that goes beyond just bantering. Thanks for any recommandations!

Simple chapter books are great for practicing fluency, but I think graphic novels are a good start for reading because it's easier to know what's going on even If you don't quite understand it.
