The red-headed space heroine is back This time, the evil Supermuscleman has developed a device for controlling children--a brainwashing machine It's up to Sardine, Little Louie, and Captain Yellow Shoulder to keep him from using it. This installment of twelve more stories is filled with even more strange creatures--including a space Santa Claus, pesky flies that plant annoying music in their victim's ears, intergalactic yogurt thieves, and little monster carpet salesmen who live on a fully-carpeted comet. The outrageous adventures of Sardine continue in these spirited, boisterous, and gently satirical tales.
In 1994, a chance encounter with an American World War II veteran named Alan Cope marked the beginning of a deep friendship and the birth of a great biographical epic.
Another of Guibert's recent works is "The Photographer." Showered with awards, translated around the world and soon to come from First Second books, it relates a Doctors Without Borders mission in 1980's Afghanistan through the eyes of a great reporter, the late Didier Lefevre.
Guibert lives in Paris with his wife and daughter.
Joann Sfar is a force of nature. Having produced over 100 books since the early 1990s, he continually enchants, disturbs, and delights his readers with his unique rambling brand of storytelling.
He happily blends memoir with fantasy and philosophical musing with outrageous inventiveness. Sfar has evolved a personal mythology and a wondrous gallery of characters, many of whom have no qualms about guest starring in his other works. The result is a personal universe that readers around the world visit and revisit in growing numbers.
His works include "Vampire Loves", "Klezmer", "The Professor's Daughter" (in collaboration with Emmanuel Guibert), the "Sardine in Outer Space" and "Little Vampire series", and the Eisner Award-winning "The Rabbi's Cat". He lives in Paris with his wife, his two children, and a cat.
