  • Sibyl-Anne and her fiancé Boomer live in blissful peace in the French countryside... until the evil rat Ratticus, evicted from his previous residence, sets his eye on the quiet acre that the couple share with their friends (a porcupine, a crow, and a rabbit). After a hilariously unsuccessful attempt to infiltrate the quiet little community in drag (which leaves a member of the cast smitten, Some Like It Hot-style), the devious Ratticus engineers the takeover of a neighboring rat colony and builds it into an army that sweeps Sibyl-Anne and her friends off their homestead and onto an island. Battles by land, by sea, and even by air ensue, until finally the wicked are defeated and peace is restored.

About the Author:

During a career that stretched from the 1950s to the 1980s, working for both Tintin and Spirou magazines, Raymond Macherot (1924-2008) created the series Chlorophylle, Clifton, Chaminou, and Sibylline (Sibyl-Anne).

Review:

“Macherot’s plotting is lively and unexpected... Thompson’s translation is colloquial and funny and, one can assume, smooths out some of the original’s mid-century social attitudes.”
- Publishers Weekly

Book Description Fantagraphics, United States, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. After a hilariously unsuccessful attempt to infiltrate the quiet little community in drag (which leaves a member of the cast smitten, Some Like It Hot-style), the devious Ratticus engineers the takeover of a neighboring rat colony and builds it into an army that sweeps Sibyl-Anne and her friends off their homestead and onto an island. Battles by land, by sea, and even by air ensue, until finally the wicked are defeated and peace is restored. Macherot s charming mouse s-eye views of bucolic idyll and his fast-paced, witty storytelling turn this book into something like a Pixar version ofThe Wind in the Willows. Part of Fantagraphics program of bringing American readers the best of post-Tintin Franco-Belgian all-ages comics, Macherot s Sibylline series (as it is called in French) is widely regarded as one of the great classics of the field, and is slated for re-release in French in 2011 as part of a Complete Sibylline project. This is the very first instance of Macherot s work being translated into English. Seller Inventory # POW9781606994528
