    I had never read a story so tender and disarming What a wonder, what a joy the possibility that love will continue despite our frailty, sins and mistakes.A mother and a father, who rediscover and relive a love they thought was over, thanks to the unexpected of everyday life.I firmly believe that mistakes and fear should not be the ultimate and only condemnation of giving up love.A family embraced by a desire for esteem and rebirth.One of the most beautiful drawings I ve ever seen in a grap I had never read a story so tender and disarming What a wonder, what a joy the possibility that love will continue despite our frailty, sins and mistakes.A mother and a father, who rediscover and relive a love they thought was over, thanks to the unexpected of everyday life.I firmly believe that mistakes and fear should not be the ultimate and only condemnation of giving up love.A family embraced by a desire for esteem and rebirth.One of the most beautiful drawings I ve ever seen in a graphic novel Una storia cos tenera e disarmante non l avevo mai letta che meraviglia, che gioia la possibilit che l a continui nonostante le nostra fragilit , peccati ed errori.Un madre ed un padre, che si riscoprono e rivivono un a che pensavano finito, grazie agli imprevisti del quotidiano.Credo fermamente che gli errori e gli sbagli non debbano essere la condanna ultima e unica rinunciare ad un a.Una famiglia abbracciata da desiderio di stima e rinascita.Disegni tra i piu belli che abbia mai visto in una graphic novel

    This is a beautiful book, sad too, looking in on a family torn apart by the dad s drink problem We see their everyday life now that mum has had to move out and lives in a flat We see dad trying and failing, I hope things go well for this family, I think some hope was hinted at the end Isabelle Arsenault s illustrations are exquisite as usual Beautiful subtle colours, mainly sepia but some pale turquoise and lime green on some images that contain hope I love the way that even some empty bott This is a beautiful book, sad too, looking in on a family torn apart by the dad s drink problem We see their everyday life now that mum has had to move out and lives in a flat We see dad trying and failing, I hope things go well for this family, I think some hope was hinted at the end Isabelle Arsenault s illustrations are exquisite as usual Beautiful subtle colours, mainly sepia but some pale turquoise and lime green on some images that contain hope I love the way that even some empty bottles are made into a beautiful image with Arsenault s magic pencil I really liked the way different styles of handwriting were used for different people speaking I laughed at the scene of mum cutting a fringe, regretting it and then growing it out again The story was touching and sad and realistic, I would love to see a sequel where some of these problems are sorted out

    Louis Undercover is the second book I am reading by the team playwright Fanny Britt, Isabelle Arsenault illustrator , and translators Christelle Morelli and Susan Ouriou The first was Fanny, The Fox and Me, which I thought was loving, poetic and puzzling The best of books make you work to connect the dots, and that one, about a girl who is bullied for being fat, connects in somewhat vague poetic ways with Jane Eyre, and a fox I liked it.This one, Louis Undercover, does a better job, or Louis Undercover is the second book I am reading by the team playwright Fanny Britt, Isabelle Arsenault illustrator , and translators Christelle Morelli and Susan Ouriou The first was Fanny, The Fox and Me, which I thought was loving, poetic and puzzling The best of books make you work to connect the dots, and that one, about a girl who is bullied for being fat, connects in somewhat vague poetic ways with Jane Eyre, and a fox I liked it.This one, Louis Undercover, does a better job, or I do a better job for myself connecting some different dots, seemingly disparate images elements, in the way of lyric poetry A loving and sweet and tearful Dad, his alcoholism and the heart breaking separation it creates, a sweet sad Mom, music, a rescued raccoon, puppy love, and two kids Louis and Truffle experiencing all this Images communicate as much orthan the words, which is always good It begins with a tear and ends with a smile that sounds trite, but it really isn t at all It earns it It s really beautiful, visually, that s the first thing to notice about the book, it s a gorgeous, gorgeous artifact The second thing to notice is that the family is sweet, including the Dad there is so much love and broken ness and strength here So much empathy for them in their struggles Such anguish that kids and parents, caregivers, and grandparents can relate to The third thing is about the connection between Mom and Dad s love and the crush Louis feels for Billie The strength fragility and inexpressibility of those feelings, that love Do you still pursue love when you know things often fall apart This feels like poetry on so many levels, and I hope this team continues work on their subtle, emotional approach to storytelling The book is for kids, maybe tweens are the best audience, as kids need these books, but I really also think this is an all ages book You don t stop reading and learning from picture books just because the kids are grown, or if you don t have kids, or whatever Anyone who loves art and thoughtful, sensitive stories would love this, and especially those families struggling or having struggled with alcohol drug issues There s not clear resolution, which I loved in this book Sometimes you don t know if everything is going to work out It reminded me of the children s picture book artist Michael Rosen s Sad Book, about his own struggles with grief over the death of his son We need these books

    LOUIS UNDERCOVER made it hard for me to breathe I was surprised by how much this affected me After all, I have read plenty of books about children coping with their parents separation, especially if one of the two parents is in no condition to maintain a stable relationship I m familiar with this, but what I am not familiar with is feeling overwhelmed with emotions in such a deep way.What sets Fanny Britt apart from many other writer and illustrator is her ability to translate images into wo LOUIS UNDERCOVER made it hard for me to breathe I was surprised by how much this affected me After all, I have read plenty of books about children coping with their parents separation, especially if one of the two parents is in no condition to maintain a stable relationship I m familiar with this, but what I am not familiar with is feeling overwhelmed with emotions in such a deep way.What sets Fanny Britt apart from many other writer and illustrator is her ability to translate images into words and vice versa beautifully and authentically You see, when you read this story, you feel twice as many emotions, seeing that both the graphics and narration hit you hard in the heart.I was especially invested in this story because alcoholics make me uncomfortable Actually, I sometimes feel scared being next to an intoxicated person There have often been men who drank too much in my life, and as a child, I was scared of their loud voices and raucous laughter that sounded unnatural to my ears.This made me experience the storyline like I would the ocean carefully, but from the bottom of my soul I needed to know everything would be okay for Louis and his brother I also needed to see hope Fortunately, I was left whole LOUIS UNDERCOVER is profound, touching, poetic and hopeful Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin

    I picked this seemingly innocuous book up at the library only to find that while aimed at middle grades, it deals with a young boy navigating adolescence along with his parents divorce We soon find out that the divorce is caused by his father s drinking problem A heavy topic handled with ease and empathy towards all of the characters The drawings use pastels and grays and are easy on the eyes which is good since the topic is heavy on the heart.

    Ok, I m in love with this graphic novel, it is absolutely stunning, the writing feels like poetry, it s written so beautifully and the illustrations are gut wrenching With themes touching on first love, alcoholism and separation, it is both subtle and clever in it s storytelling Oh to be described as a gorgeous cactus

    Oh, my heart Give this to anyone who thinks kids books don t tell the truth This second book from the pair who did Jane, the Fox, and Me tells the story of Louis Because his parents are having difficulty coping with their split mom is anxious and unsleeping dad is alcoholic , Louis is sure that he is not brave, either, as evidenced by his inability to speak to his crush, Billie Louis s life between two houses is drawn in emotive pencil, with touches of sea green and chartreuse according Oh, my heart Give this to anyone who thinks kids books don t tell the truth This second book from the pair who did Jane, the Fox, and Me tells the story of Louis Because his parents are having difficulty coping with their split mom is anxious and unsleeping dad is alcoholic , Louis is sure that he is not brave, either, as evidenced by his inability to speak to his crush, Billie Louis s life between two houses is drawn in emotive pencil, with touches of sea green and chartreuse according to his moods Older elementary kids would appreciate this the most, especially if they ve gone through similar experiences.As an aside, I much prefer the French title, Louis among the ghosts

    Dad cries and drinks and Louis longs for Billie love isn t easy at any age but worth a try anyway Really moving story told as much via Arsenault s hauntingly beautiful illustrations as by the text The book layout itself is beautiful too, with some drawings occupying double page spreads and chapter breaks for pacing.
