Ariol's best friend, Ramono, is a pig. He's also loud, impulsive, irresponsible, and has a big snout that looks like a light socket. Sneaking into a parking garage to play with fuses, carting grandpa's dog around in a wheelbarrow, wrestling matches with his sister; you may have thought Ariol was trouble enough, but you've never seen Ramono on the loose!

About Marc Boutavant

EMMANUEL GUIBERT has written a great many graphic novels for readers young and old, among them the "Sardine in Outer Space" series and "The Professor's Daughter" with Joann Sfar. Another of Guibert's recent works is "The Photographer." Showered with awards, it relates a Doctors Without Borders mission in 1980s Afghanistan through the eyes of a great reporter. Guibert lives in Paris with his wife and daughter.Originating from Burgundy (as do the best snails), MARC BOUTAVANT now lives and works in Paris. His work springs from a wry observation of life and the interaction of his friends and children. Their quirks of personality, mannerisms and reactions to situations are transposed onto his characters.

Customer reviews

Just delightful! I've grown quite fond of this anthropomorphic community. Such lovely, but very real-life characteristics. I had a smile on my face the whole way through but wasn't laughing out loud like the last volume so just a tad lower rating than volume 2. Volume 3 continues with episodic short stories centred around Ariol the donkey and his family, friends, community and school. As the title suggests his best friend Ramono, the pig, is given some extra feature time as the stories largely surround their friendship and their love for the superhero Thunder Horse. We even get to meet Ramono's sister and mother. No age is ever given for our heroes but we are told Ramono's older sister is 14, so I'm thinking Ariol et al. are about 12yo. Kids will certainly identify with the realistic slice -of-life situations which are played out here for humour on both a level that kids and adults will enjoy more
