Jean-Jacques Sempe (b.1932) is one of the world's most successful illustrators and cartoonists. He is the illustrator of the classic children's-book character, Nicholas, and author of a collection of some thirty albums of his cartoons and graphic novels, all published or to be published by Phaidon. His world-renowned illustrations and cartoons are featured on the cover of the New Yorker and in Paris Match. Rene Goscinny (1926-77), born in Paris, lived most of his early years in Buenos Aires and New York. He returned to France in the 1950s where he met Jean-Jacques Sempe and together they created the character for Nicholas, the famous schoolboy. He later worked with Alberto Uderzo, on making the adventures of Asterix the Gaul. A prolific and internationally successful children's author, he is also the creater of Lucky Luke and Dingodossiers, among others. He also received Cesars for his numerous animated cartoons.Review:
'Lovable, naive and very French, Nicholas is timeless.' The Guardian 'illustrated with diabolic humour by Jean Jacques Sempe ... a series of subversive stories about a little French boy which has captivated readers since the Sixties.' Evening Standard 'a chic and sturdily childproof new English edition, translated in ebullient vernacular by Anthea Bell' The Spectator '...Liberally endowed with Sempe's tiny, comic cartoon figures, these whimsical mini-adventures will captivate readers...' Kirkus Reviews
