A la recherche du lama miteux - Léa German - Hardcover book - 17 x 23 cm - 96 pages - November 2021 - €15
Bouchra, a young human dressed up as a dragon, and her friend Bruce, a talking lion, have been kidnapped by Larron and Margoulin. The terrible ogres have a diabolical plan: to build a zoo to attract children and then gobble them up! An evil genius plan, but to create an appealing zoo, you need appealing animals… And what better than the amazing llama with sweet poop, who lives at the famous Chateau des Trois Groins? They send Bouchra to kidnap the animal, in exchange of her and her friend Bruce’s freedom. Along the way, she meets the happy inhabitants of the Chateau des Trois Groins… Can they stop Larron and Margoulin’s evil plan?
In this comic book, Léa German portrays a lively and colourful world, populated by fantastic creatures. With humour, she explores complex questions about identity, friendship, loyalty and courage and shows that trust and unity can overcome any situation when all seems lost. A journey in which friendship and community are essential to defeat the terrible ogres, Larron and Margoulin.
Since studying at the Beaux-Arts d’Angouleme, Lea German has worked on numerous publications with independent comic book publishers and children’s magazines. She has developed a rich imagination populated by anthropomorphic animals, gentle giants and turbulent children, where her seemingly soft strokes and colours hide a mischievous and sometimes black humour.
