About the Author
Brigitte Luciani is the author of many French titles for children. Born in Hanover, Germany, she received a Masters degree in literature and worked in journalism, editing, and photo research before moving to France, where she began writing books for kids and adults. Around the same time, she discovered graphic novels and began looking for an illustrator to collaborate with on a comic of her own. She teamed up with with Eve Tharlet for the Monsieur Blaireau et Madame Renarde series, which has been translated into English as Mr. Badger and Mrs. Fox.

Eve Tharlet's childhood was steeped in a Germano-French culture; she was born in Alsace, France, but grew up in Germany. She has illustrated about 150 children's books in different countries, as well as nine graphic novels for kids, which were made into an animated TV series.

Reviews

"Quality translation and art production, along with a hardcover binding that lies flat, are details that suggest this book can be a popular mainstay in collections for a long time. A delight on many levels, it is also big enough to share with small groups and detailed enough to make for a leisurely individual reading experience." --Booklist

"The story has enough action to keep readers' interest and a dramatic resolution. . . . The soft watercolor illustrations evoke the summer forest setting and move the story along. A good start to a new series."

"Tharlet's uncluttered, fluidly brushed watercolor scenes are easy to follow as the young folk squabble about games and other issues but eventually come together over plans for a big moving-in party. . . . it's hard not to warm up to characters named Bristle and Grub."
