Mr Badger and Mrs Fox 4 Peace and Quiet

By Brigitte Luciani
Illustrated by Eve Tharlet

This series gives the youngest children and beginning readers graphic novels of their own that handle real family situations with charm, humor, and just the right point of view for the age group.

Winter is coming! Mr. Badger, Mrs. Fox, Grub, Bristle, Ginger, and Berry are hurrying to prepare their home for the big freeze. But badgers and foxes don't spend winter the same way! Mr. Badger likes to sleep most of the winter, which Grub likes very much, but that doesn't suit Ginger. She'd rather play in the snow, and Mrs. Fox decides winter is a good time to teach her daughter all about hunting! Can the new family figure out a way to spend their first winter together that will make everyone happy?

  • Spells out complicated family situations for the youngest readers.
  • Watercolor art is a charming mix of picture book and graphic novel sensibilities.
  • Just right for reading aloud; sequential art helps children read on their own.

About the author

Brigitte Luciani was born in Hanover, Germany. After getting her masters degree in literature, she worked in a variety of jobs including journalism, editing, and photo research. In 1994 she moved to France, where she began writing books for kids and adults. Around the same time, she first discovered graphic novels and marveled at the possibilities of a format that has been neglected in Germany. After a long time searching for the perfect collaborators for a foray into comics, she teamed up with the artist Colonel Moutarde on l'Espace d'un soir, Comedie d'amour, and Histoires cachees (Delcourt) and with Eve Tharlet for the Monsieur Blaireau et Madame Renarde series (Dargaud).
