Ariol Vol. 9 The Teeth of the Rabbit

Written by Emmanuel Guibert | Illustrated by Marc Boutavant
Papercutz | November 29, 2016

Bouncer, Ariol’s rabbit classmate, is the best one at sports (even if he wears a dental device). That’s just one typical detail you’ll discover in the latest all-new collection of twelve delicately delightful Ariol stories. Ariol, that cute little blue donkey with the big eye glasses, whose best friend is a pig, who is hopelessly in love with a cow, while a fly is equally head-over-heels in love with him (not that he cares). Ariol’s ever-expanding universe features many endearing characters that will remind you of your friends and (possibly) your enemies too. After all, Ariol’s just a donkey like you and me.

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.

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 Lefèvre.

Guibert lives in Paris with his wife and daughter.
