Where are Mrs. Mole’s glasses? Did she lose them near the brook this morning? What if someone had taken them... Determined to find out, Poppy and Sam go out looking for them. With this second Poppy and Sam adventure, Cathon offers us a refreshing comic book for early readers who have a taste for humorous mysteries.

 

Cathon is an author and illustrator. She studied visual and media arts (BA, Université du Québec à Montréal). Since 2013, she has been publishing comic books and picture books at La Pastèque, Pow Pow, Comme des géants and Owlkids. She also writes an illustrated feminist column for la Gazette des femmes. She published her first book in 2011, Trois secondes plus vite, for which she was selected for the Bédélys Indépendant prize. The third adventure of Poppy & Sam, released in 2020, is her fourth title to be published by Comme des géants.

 

“Mimose & Sam comics are beautifully illustrated and feature bright and attractive colors. Because they contain few speech bubbles, I strongly recommend them to elementary school students.”

–Anne-Sophie Charland – J'enseigne avec la littérature jeunesse

 

“With the first Mimose & Sam volume, Cathon already had us falling under her spell, and this new one is just as adorable. This short comic book is ideal for early readers. Even the spiders are charming.”

– Amélie Lacroix Maccabée – Boucle Magazine


“Like the previous volume, this follow-up stands halfway between a picture book and a comic strip. Likewise, it is about solving a mystery. I would, therefore, highlight the same key strengths: it is an interesting gateway to investigation stories in addition to having detailed illustrations. Children paying careful attention to details will happily discover a frog who washes dishes and the Mole and Bat's funny readings.”
