In the goofy space adventures of a little girl called Sardine, encounters aren't always friendly: weird creatures, cosmic squids, masters of the universe, talking clouds, and evil beings abound. In this volume of twelve stories, Supermuscleman, the chief executive dictator of the universe, is on a mission to make all the galaxy's kids behave. Sardine must enlist the help of her cousin Lou and her pirate uncle, the gruff Captain Yellow Shoulder, to outwit him and his evil plans.

The first book in an exciting new series by two of France's most talented comics authors, Sardine is a feast for the imagination of young readers. Emmanuel Guibert, an outstanding artist and graphic storyteller, takes a turn on the script, while Joann Sfar illuminates the writing with rambunctious, high-energy artwork.

good book

A dozen 10 page space/pirate adventures whose stories and art are light fun and spontaneously quirky (i. e. not self consciously so). I am not a kid, but I still like kid stories/art, and am very appreciative when I CAN like them, as is the case here. I'll definitely be reading the other volumes in the series.
