The Professor's Daughter
I forgot to mention that I posted this week's Newsarama blog column on Joann Sfar and Emmanuel Guibert's The Professor's Daughter. Here's an excerpt:
"Knowing that it’s about the romance between a mummy and the daughter of the man who discovered him, I expected The Professor’s Daughter to be whimsical. And it is.
"What I wasn’t prepared for was for it to go beyond whimsy and into ridiculousness. That’s not a bad thing, but it caught me off guard when I thought I was reading one kind of book and it turned out I was reading another."
