'Ariol #9: The Teeth of the Rabbit' by Emmanuel Gulbert with art by Marc Boutavant is a series of 12 stories of these characters. I was unfamiliar with them, but I had absolutely no trouble reading this with no prior knowledge of the series.
All the characters are animals. Ariol is a donkey. His friend Bouncer is a rabbit. Ariol has a crush on Petula, the cow, but Bizzbilla, the fly has a crush on him. Ariol likes to pretend he is his fantasy hero Battleness (especially when he needs to be brave). The stories are all about the kind of situations that young children face or have fun with. They have to conquer their fear of heights, or decide if they are going to open the hidden presents they find. They trick their parents into taking them out for fast food, against their parents wishes, and generally play around with blanket forts and pretend.
I really liked these little characters and they way they get along and play. Ariol is kind of clumsy and silly, just like a real child. His friend Bouncer has way too much energy, just like some little kids. I think young readers would enjoy these characters, and maybe even see themselves in them.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from Papercutz and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
