A collection of illustrations by world-renowned cartoonist Jean-Jacques Sempé.
"Sempé goes about showing us up with great good nature. … his drawing is consistently delightful."—Anthea Bell, Sunday Telegraph
"Drawings [that] are eloquent in every language."—Quentin Blake, The Week
"[Sempé] is, par excellence, the master of the panoramic cartoon... Captions [...] have been brilliantly translated by Anthea Bell... There are many talented French cartoonists. [...] [Sempé] is the most universal... Sempé cartoons are a kind of illustrative haiku. In such small space he conveys a great amount of meaning... An infinite delight in the complexity and ambivalence – and the humour – of the everyday and the ordinary."—The Independent
"[Sempé] started life as a journeyman cartoonist, drawing single gags. From there he has gradually broadened out and blossomed, acquiring colour and boldness and breadth, until it is hard to call him anything but an artist... You can’t really lose with Sempé."—The Spectator
