A visually stunning, thoughtful and thought-provoking graphic novel about family separation, love and bravery from the award-winning creators of the internationally admired Jane, the Fox and Me.
In this powerful new graphic novel from Fanny Britt and Isabelle Arsenault, we meet Louis, a young boy who shuttles between his mum's home in the city and his dad's house in the country, with his little brother, Truffle who loves to sing James Brown songs. While coming to terms with the sadness and complexities of his divorced parents' relationship, Louis – with the help of his best friend, Boris – is also trying to summon up the courage to speak to his true love, Billie. Seen through the eyes of Louis, this is a beautifully illustrated, true-to-life and hopeful portrayal of a complicated but loving family, and how a wise and sensitive and brave boy still manages to find his own way forward in spite of everything.
