Product Details

Praise

“This affecting, Proustian dip into childhood memory follows a relationship between two brothers in all its intensity and complexity….Baudoin lays pages in loose pen-and-ink, with rounded figures inhabiting vibrantly sketched settings, which suggest something between classical Renaissance cartoons and great children’s book artists like Maurice Sendak and Edward Ardizzone. His evocation of childhood, at once dreamlike and intensely vivid, makes the reader inclined to agree with the brothers when they say that ‘it’s a little dumb to grow up.’” —Publishers Weekly, starred review


“For newbies and aficionados alike, this artistic remembrance-of-things-past should prove poignantly compelling.” —Booklist

“No other book inspired me more than Piero. Edmond Baudoin is a master.” — Craig Thompson
“An exceptionally talented and thoughtful cartoonist.” —The AV Club
