Brand new series from multiple award-winning author Emmanuel Guibert and renowned illustrator Marc Boutavant!
Ariol is your everyday tween donkey. He lives in the suburbs with his mom and dad. His best friend is a pig. He's in love with a beautiful cow in his class. His teacher is a dog. His gym teacher is a huge rooster. In short, Ariol is just like you and me.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Though he produced such thoughtful adult fare as Alan's War (2008) and The Photographer (2009), French author Guibert is also known for the exceedingly child-centric series Sardine in Outer Space. Ariol and his ensemble are a more Earth-bound cast of anthropomorphized animal children, but the author continues to display a deep understanding of what makes kids tick. He goes in a far less fantastical direction in these 10 10-page stories, originally from France, which offer subtly humorous slice-of-life vignettes. Whether Ariol is joining his father for a trip to the ATM, arguing with a friend about sneakers, accompanying his grandmother to the movies, pursuing his great crush, or emulating his favorite superhero, the author dares to depict the exclusionary, argumentative, self-centered ways children can sometimes behave, without giving up an iota of their charm. There is even a piece that touches on racism, letting animal species bear the brunt of the offenses, which could prove a great boon to many classroom discussions. Collaborator Boutavant captures the manic internal life of Ariol and friends with fun, deceptively childlike art.--Karp, Jesse Copyright 2010 Booklist"
