VIOLETTE AND THE MAGIC GLASSES
Violette et les lunettes magiques - Emilie Clarke - 17 x 23 cm - 136 pages - March 2021 - €17
Violette is 10 years old. During a health check-up at school, the doctor realises that she can’t see properly and that she needs glasses. Violette is upset. She’s sure that Lisa, the class know-it-all, will make fun of her! Luckily, a strange optician has the perfect pair of magic glasses for her. And with this new accessory and her super-powers, Violette soon becomes the star of the playground. She can see all the school’s secrets and discovers the presence of a ghost, who helps her uncover an evil plan and terrible crime…
Remember that feeling of dread when you have to wear new braces or glasses to school? Émilie Clarke sweeps away this fear with some magic and lots of humour. A funny, sweet and lively comic book, featuring all the primary school archetypes - the bully, the kid who never knows what’s going on, secret admirers and even a friendly pet… And they all find themselves at the heart of a sinister and unsettling intrigue. Behind the bright colours and perfectly transcribed playground atmosphere, Émilie Clarke explores the small physical changes that are sometimes hard to accept, as well as the need for recognition and self-affirmation.
