Author Information

Emmanuel Guibert and Joann Sfar are two of the most ridiculously talented comics authors to come from France. Prolific, inventive, and versatile beyond common sense, the two shared a Paris studio from 1995 to 1999, and stories grew there like ragweed. Taking turns writing scripts and drawing pictures, Joann and Emmanuel have collaborated on a number of prizewinning graphic novels, such as THE PROFESSOR'S DAUGHTER, the BLACK OLIVES series, and now SARDINE IN OUTER SPACE. Working solo, Sfar is the author of the popular LITTLE VAMPIRE and VAMPIRE LOVES series, as well as the bestselling THE RABBI'S CAT. As for Guibert, his many works for readers young and old include ALAN'S WAR, an extraordinary biography of his late father Alan Cope, an American WWII veteran.

Review quote

Gr 4-8--Intrepid Sardine and her wacky group of space-faring pirate friends are at it again! Not one to let odd situations slow her down, Sardine leads the gang as they confront Supermuscleman in an astoundingly creative assortment of adventures. From a planet made of fast food to a retirement home in space to a rock concert that shakes the universe, the situations the characters find themselves in are unrelentingly silly and will leave readers giggling. The bright, colorful illustrations are filled with manic action and fascinating details that will draw children in and have them coming back for more.--Dawn Rutherford, King County Library System, Bellevue, WA "School Library Journal "

Review text

Doughty young Sardine and her cohorts continue to vanquish hilariously dopey Supermuscleman, mad scientist Doc Krok and other villains in nine more or less independent new adventures that range from helping out a crowd of cartoon characters angrily protesting because they're so lamely drawn ("Hey! You could at least draw me some pants!") to rescuing acres of stolen French fries and herds of wild "Burgeegies" in the mouthwatering kingdom of Yummy. Presented in colorful, crowded cartoon panels and well-endowed with both self-referential comments ("Comics are cool but we only get 10 pages per story . . . A movie's longer, so we'd have more time to kick Supermuscleman's butt") and characters with names like Emailia and Fetcher Bone, this expert mix of action, gross humor and clever side remarks will, despite the lack of a cohesive plot line, draw carloads of Captain Underpants graduates. (Graphic fantasy. 8-11) (Kirkus Reviews)
