Lou! 3: Down in the Dumps

By Julien Neel
Illustrated by Julien Neel

This award-winning series has sold over 800,000 copies in France and Belgium and it has been translated into 14 languages. It is also a popular animated series in France.

The romance between Richard and Lou's mom has finally blossomed (with more PDA than Lou can stomach). Lou's new school year is off to a bad start when she and Mina are assigned to different classrooms. An argument breaks out (who can remember why?) and suddenly these best friends aren't on speaking terms. Lou finds a new friend in Mary Emily, a moody goth who loves nothing more than talking about herself. Lou misses her best friend and the simpler days of her childhood. She is troubled by something she can't quite describe--her doctor's diagnosis is an "adolescence crisis."

  • Fits the "comics for girls" market (no ponies, but everything else).
  • One-page chapters are accessible to different reading levels.
  • Handles the tangles and troubles of growing up in a lighthearted way.

About the author

Award-winning author and artist Julien Neel began his career as a host of business seminars. His musical puppet show on developing management skills was unfortunately made obsolete by PowerPoint presentations, forcing him to consider a new career in music. After a tour of Europe, his band split over irreconcilable differences about food. He eventually settled in Aix-en-Provence and has joyfully devoted himself exclusively to comics creation for the past ten years or so.
