Author(s): Matthieu Sylvander
Leeks who believe a cow is one of Santa s reindeer, carrots who accept an invitation to a party given by rabbits, and a leek and carrot couple whose romance precipitates total vegetable warfare are the hapless protagonists in these satiric, snarky stories. Brief text and wildly funny drawings expertly convey the quirky, madcap humor of author and artist."
"When readers tire of comforting bedtime tales, they can revel in this trio of darkly funny vegetable comics from a French team making their U.S. debut." " Publishers Weekly" "The translation offers children both rich vocabulary and Gallic humor: "Bats. Right. An anguished murmur passes among the carrots." Barrier's ink drawings employ energetic, humorous line that recalls James Marshall in its ability to express broad emotion in just a few strokes... Delicious, nutritious absurdity." " Kirkus""
