His books have been translated into 16 languages. Some of his books have been adapted for television, like "The Fan of Seville". The televised series has been distributed in many countries. Then promoted by his editor, he has done a series based on the "The Six Companions", which went on to be very successful, comparable with that of "Famous Five". Each of those titles has sold nearly 450,000 books.
Bonzon also wrote comprehensive school books on learning to read, which are very popular and made to entrall the young reader like a novel. His series "The Six Companions", which counts more than 40 titles, was read by many French-children after World War II.
