Marc Boutavant in Elementary Schools and at the Miami Book Fair [fr]
Marc Boutavant will be touring in South Florida from November 21 to November 24. Meet him in Miami’s Elementary Schools and at the Miami Book Fair !
For years, Boutavant has drawn the popular Ariol comic strip in J’aime lire, a French monthly magazine for young readers. Two titles in a series of books based on the strip, Ariol: Just a Donkey Like You and Me, and Ariol: Thunder Horse, are now available in English translation. Like Mouk, Ariol has been adapted into an animated tv series.
His cartoons for children (ages 7-12) and picture books for younger readers (ages 4-6), including The Great House Hunt, a well reviewed bestseller in France, have made him a widely sought after illustrator.
Boutavant’s lively, expressive and inventive illustrations are attractive to children in their seeming simplicity and to parents in the complexity they distil. He has worked for a number of French children’s publishers, including Sarbacane, Editions Mila and Bayard.
This illustrator also had the opportunity to interact with his audience at Books and Books in Coral Gables.
