I like them, too. However - and please take this as constructive 
criticism - make sure your reds match a bit more closely. The logo and 
the mascot are a lighter (and slightly more blue) shade of red than the 
color of the print, making them look almost pink when they're right 
next to each other.

Breadcrumbs. Like crumbs from bread, left as a trail.

I like the idea of breadcrumbs, but I think including the whole name of 
the language is better, because you can see the path in the address bar 
anyway. In that case, it should be:

Home -> Documentation -> English -> Books -> Handbook
