The Tale of Peter Rabbit

The Tale of Peter Rabbit

Story Summary
Peter Rabbit sneaks away from his sisters and mother to go to Mr McGregor’s garden.  He enjoys eating all sorts of vegetables until Mr McGregor finds the little rabbit.  Peter must run and hide, and run some more, or else Mr McGregor will catch him and put him into a pie!  If he weren’t such a disobedient rabbit, Peter might not have got himself into this mess in the first place.

About Beatrix Potter
Helen Beatrix Potter (1866-1943) wrote and illustrated many classic children’s books including The Tale of Peter Rabbit.  Childhood pets and her love for animals greatly influenced the characters of her stories.  Inspiration also came from her family trips to Scotland and the English countryside.  The Tale of Peter Rabbit was Beatrix’s first book which originated from a letter she wrote to a five-year-old boy named Noel, who was sick.  As a child, Beatrix had a pet rabbit named Peter, whom she used to observe all day long and sketch pictures of.

Valérian – Tome 5 – Les oiseaux du maître

Valérian – Tome 5 – Les oiseaux du maître

Valérian, le plus grand space-opéra publié par des auteurs français, nous entraîne dans un monde et un futur lointains. Le duo est constitué d’agents spatio-temporels : Valérian et Laureline. C’est à bord d’un vaisseau affrété par Galaxity, capitale de l’Empire Terrien, qu’ils se déplacent pour vivre des aventures hautes en couleur. Les scénarios font d’habiles clins d’oeil à notre époque, mettant en scène tyrans et dictateurs, souvent bien proches de ceux de notre 20ème siècle. Le dessin est classique mais doué d’une fantaisie qui donne une saveur rarement égalée aux créatures monstrueuses ou sympathiques que croise Valérian.

Grâce à des histoires formidablement inventives, les auteurs de Valérian ont su séduire le public le plus large possible depuis 1967, année de création de cette série pour l’hebdomadaire PILOTE.

L’album Les Habitants du Ciel constitue une étonnante “encyclopédie loufoque” détaillant chacune des créatures qui apparaissent dans les 13 albums.

My Brother’s Husband, Volume 1

My Brother’s Husband, Volume 1

***WINNER OF THE 2018 EISNER AWARD FOR BEST U.S. EDITION OF INTERNATIONAL MATERIAL — ASIA***

Yaichi is a work-at-home suburban dad in contemporary Tokyo; formerly married to Natsuki and father to their young daughter, Kana. Their lives suddenly change with the arrival at their doorstep of a hulking, affable Canadian named Mike Flanagan, who declares himself the widower of Yaichi’s estranged gay twin, Ryoji. Mike is on a quest to explore Ryoji’s past, and the family reluctantly but dutifully takes him in. What follows is an unprecedented and heartbreaking look at the state of a largely still-closeted Japanese gay culture: how it’s been affected by the West, and how the next generation can change the preconceptions about it and prejudices against it.

(Please note: This book is a traditional work of manga, and reads back to front and right to left.)
