Emmanuel Guibert has written a great many graphic novels for young 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 into his characters.From Booklist:
Though he produced such thoughtful adult fare as Alan’s War (2008) and The Photographer (2009), French author Guibert is also known for the exceedingly child-centric series Sardine in Outer Space. Ariol and his ensemble are a more Earth-bound cast of anthropomorphized animal children, but the author continues to display a deep understanding of what makes kids tick. He goes in a far less fantastical direction in these 10 10-page stories, originally from France, which offer subtly humorous slice-of-life vignettes. 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. There is even a piece that touches on racism, letting animal species bear the brunt of the offenses, which could prove a great boon to many classroom discussions. Collaborator Boutavant captures the manic internal life of Ariol and friends with fun, deceptively childlike art. Grades 2-4. --Jesse Karp
