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 Angoul√™me 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.
