Ariol knows he's just like his hero in every way: brave, er . . . handsome, and . . . um . . .tall? Well, maybe Ariol has a ways to go, but that's not going to stop him from doing everything he can to grow up and become just like the guardian of the stars! With charming artwork and hilarious vignettes, Ariol is the right series for anyone who ever started off life as a kid!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Guibert and Boutavant (Ariol: Just a Donkey like You and Me, 2013) return with 12 more vignettes about the precocious and charming blue donkey Ariol, who wonders and worries and tries to get his way just like any other kid. Ariol and his friends anthropomorphic animals all get into delightful scrapes in each story, like when his friend Ramono comes over and they wreak tiny havoc while Ariol's mom leaves them alone for 20 minutes. Critically acclaimed Guibert's playful writing perfectly captures the sneaky innocence of childhood, full of harebrained schemes and well-intentioned disasters, and it is magnificently matched with Boutavant's colorful, Scarryesque characters that are silly and earnest all at once. A joy to read at any age.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The everyday adventures of Ariol the donkey continue in this companion to Just a Donkey Like You and Me. Readers needn't be familiar with that book to enjoy this one-between the character list on the front flap and the episodic nature of the 12 stories, they'll have no trouble diving into the world of this blue, bespectacled, school-age donkey. Boutavant's (For Just One Day) anthropomorphic animals resemble a cross between the work of Richard Scarry and Herge, and both he and Guibert (The Photographer) clearly convey the characters' very human emotions, preoccupations, and eccentricities. For his part, Ariol is single-minded, a tad selfish, and often hilariously oblivious (in the final story, he reads intently at the bookstore, entirely unaware that the owner, Mr. Begossian, has fallen off a ladder and needs help). Nearly every story ends with a zinger (after Ariol and his buddy Ramono make fun of their new teachers over several pages, readers discover in the final panel that the grim-looking instructors have overheard the entire exchange), but the misunderstandings, slapstick gags, and repartee maintain the fun throughout. Ages 7-10. (June)? (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
