The Friends Club

  • The cutest and most endearing characters in children’s comics, in seemingly naive, hugely tender humourous adventures!


    Crocus the little snake hugs his mother and goes on an adventure… On his way, he finds nuts, apples, mushrooms, but above all a friend: Tulip the bear. Together, Winter will be milder and the Rude Monster will be less scary. On top of that, Violette the little bird has a great idea: to create a club, a «Friends Club»!


    Throughout this collection of short stories, our three friends discover the world and learn to grow hand in hand: who is “jackcrac- roc” when Spring arrives? and what to do when Tulip disappears? These little trials build their friendship… and when it’s too scary, Tulip’s mother and her walnut pies are never far away!

    THE AUTHOR 

     

    Sophie Guerrive was born in 1983 in Marseille (France) and studied art in Aix-en-Provence then illustration in Strasbourg. She took part in various newspapers, magazines, fanzines. Since 2007, she has published several comic and illustration books. Besides her short and minimalistic stories influenced by comic strips like Peanuts or Mafalda, she also works on larger and very detailed drawings inspired by medieval illumination, oriental miniatures or Japanese prints. Her stories are often tinged with adventure and absurd humour, and feature her favourite themes: the marine world, initiatory journeys, the ancient and medieval periods, and visual and narrative symbolism.
