Sleep Tight, Anna Banana!

Published by First Second Books, June 2014

Anna Banana can't settle down tonight, even though her stuffed animal friends are tired and just want to sleep. They suffer through delay after delay and excuse after excuse, until Anna Banana is finally sleepy. And then . . . it's time for their revenge! Anna Banana is about to get a taste of her own medicine.  

Anna Banana is a fantastic character—a lively little girl and a fearsome tyrant to her stuffed animal pals. The first of two picture books featuring this character, Sleep Tight, Anna Banana! is sure to be a hit with the youngest of readers . . . and with their parents!

Alexis Dormal was born in Brussels in 1977 and studied cinema. He then decided to write and draw for comics and children's books.

Dominique Roques is Alexis Dormal's mother and started to write with her son in 2005.

Reviews:

"Anna Banana learns a bit about consideration for others in this amusing story . . .  The humor keeps the story moving along at a brisk, entertaining pace." -- School Library Journal

"A comics-inspired delight from France introduces an appealingly feisty girl to a U.S. audience . . . This tidy little package could inspire an uptick in bedtime exuberance." -- Kirkus Reviews

Childhood

Written when the author was eighty-three years old, but dealing with only the first twelve years of her life, Childhood is constructed as a dialogue between Sarraute and her memory. Sarraute gently interrogates her interlocutor in search of her own intentions, more precise accuracy, and indeed, the truth.

Utu

Jack Fitzgerald has been an Auckland cop since the unsolved disappearances of his wife and his daughter. When news of his suicide reaches his old friend Paul Osborne in Australia, Osborne wastes no time: he flies direct to New Zealand in search of the truth, convinced that Jack's death could not have been suicide.

What's These Worlds Coming To?

Our contemporary challenge, according to Jean-Luc Nancy and Aurelien Barrau, is that a new world has stolen up on us. We no longer live in a world, but in worlds. Together, Barrau, an astrophysicist, and Nancy, a distinguished philosophy professor, argue that contemporary thought has shifted from deconstruction to what they carefully call the struction of dis-order.
