SNEAK PEEK: Ariol
Papercutz sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Ariol, a graphic novel that you can check out, after the jump.
Written by international best-selling author Emmanuel Guibert with art by the critically acclaimed children’s book illustrator Marc Boutavant, Ariol is about all the questions that are big when you’re little, in tidy sitcom-like vignettes that aren’t just funny but surprisingly true. It’s hard to find children’s books that show us the way life as a kid actually is rather than how we all want it to be; Ariol is the straight story about growing up and all its ridiculousness! Oh, and it also stars a little blue donkey.
Guibert is world-renowned for S.A.R.D.I.N.E., his hit children’s graphic novel series, and The Photographer, winner of the Essentials of Angoulême award. Boutavant is best known for Around the World With Mouk, which inspired the Disney Junior animated series Mouk in the UK. Their first team-up here is not only an artistic achievement but an industry event.
