Thunder Horse (Ariol Graphic Novels Series #2)by Emmanuel Guibert, Marc Boutavant (Illustrator)
Ariol knows he's just like his hero in every way: brave, er... handsome, and... um... tall? Well, maybe Ariol has a ways to go, but that's not going to stop him from doing everything he can to grow up and become just like the guardian of the stars! With charming artwork and hilarious vignettes, Ariol is the right series for anyone who ever started off life as a kid!
“Definitely on the Wimpy Kid bandwagon, but less vicious with the satire and therefore all the more welcome.” KIRKUS
“Whether Ariol is joining his father for a trip to the ATM, arguing with a friend about sneakers, accompanying his grandmother to the movies, pursuing his great crush, or emulating his favorite superhero, the author dares to depict the exclusionary, argumentative, self-centered ways children can sometimes behave, without giving up an iota of their charm.” BOOKLIST
“I dare you to put it down once you start, and you'll agree, Ariol is the new kid in town for reluctant readers.” KID LIT REVIEWS
Meet the Author
Emmanuel Guibert has written a great many graphic novels for readers young and old, among them the Sardine in Outer Space series and The Professor's Daughter with Joann Sfar. Another of Guibert's recent works is The Photographer. Showered with awards, it relates a Doctors Without Borders mission in 1980's Afghanistan through the eyes of a great reporter. Guibert lives in Paris with his wife and daughter.
Originating from Burgundy (as do the best snails), Marc Boutavant now lives and works in Paris. His work springs from a wry observation of life and the interaction of his friends and children. Their quirks of personality, mannerisms and reactions to situations are transposed onto his characters.
