Ariol's best friend, Ramono, is a pig. He's also loud, impulsive, irresponsible, and has a big snout that looks like a light socket. Sneaking into a parking garage to play with fuses, carting grandpa's dog around in a wheelbarrow, wrestling matches with his sister; you may have thought Ariol was trouble enough, but you've never seen Ramono on the loose!
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This latest installment in the charming French comic series is more of everything there is to love about Ariol, the precocious blue donkey, and his myriad animal friends and family. Here, he nurses a powerful crush on Petula and writes her a poem ( Your eyes are pretty like two TVs showing cartoons all the time ). He also handily manages to get a copy of his favorite comic, Thunder Horse, signed at a convention and plays mischievous games with his rambunctious best friend, Ramono. But it's not all roughhousing and video games: Ariol is a deeply feeling boy. He tries to avoid trouble and worries when he gets caught up in something wrong. He innocently loves Petula, but he also expresses harmless curiosity at Ramono's sister's prodigious bust. None of these events, however, are treated as anything other than a little guy learning about the world. All the while, Boutavant's bright and buoyant illustrations and Guibert's pitch-perfect dialogue elevate the simple, everyday stories to illuminate something refreshingly honest about being a kid.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2010 Booklist"
