From the artist of "Doomboy", "Le Cadavre et le Sofa", "Les Betises de Xinophixerox," and "Le Serpent d'Eau." Tony received a 2015 Eisner Award nomination for Doomboy in the category "Best Graphic Novel for Teens".
A fantastical trip through a strange landscape that explores the changing perspective of a young boy facing adulthood. As surreal as Alice in Wonderland, with a powerful truth underneath it all. This beautifully illustrated, watercolored tale will make readers long for the simplicity of youth while embracing the wonderful complexities of adulthood: RESPONSIBILITY, LOVE, CONSEQUENCE, and ultimately the shocking, inevitable realities of LIFE and DEATH.
Written by Pierre Paquet, this honest portrayal of a moment from his own life will take readers to a land of contemplation and adventure.
