A boy's village childhood with all the traditional attributes - father, mother, brother, sister, a house on a lake, tree-climbing, going to the races, music lessons, a bicycle, a crush on a girl in the class - is bedevilled by the mystifying appearances of the eccentric Mr. Sommer. Moving through the landscape in silent haste, like a man possessed, with his empty rucksack and his long, odd-looking walking stick, Mr Sommer runs like a black thread through the boys days

Nothing is simple by Sempé( Book )

44 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean-Jacques Sempe's witty drawings and keen eye for the finer points of the human condition have delighted readers in France and beyond for over forty years. Now, his sharply observed and beautifully drawn cartoons are available in English for the first time." "'Nothing is Simple' is classic Sempe - a timeless mix of tender moments and absurd situations. Sempe's world is populated by nosy neighbours, mischievous schoolboys and thwarted lovers, by snooty holidaymakers and crowds of frustrated commuters in the big city. Sempe's inimitable drawings are as fresh, engaging and funny today as when they were first published in 1962. The captions were translated by Anthea Bell, who also helped to bring Asterix the Gaul to the English-speaking world."--Jacket
Everything is complicated by Sempé( Book )

48 editions published between 1962 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean-Jacques Sempe's witty drawings and keen eye for the finer points of the human condition have delighted readers in France and beyond for over forty years. Now, his sharply observed and beautifully drawn cartoons are available in English for the first time." "In 'Everything is Complicated', first published in 1963, a number of Sempe's favourite subjects are already clearly in evidence, such as mild-mannered men and women with colourful inner lives and people who choose to express themselves through the medium of the protest sign. There are also cartoons about hapless tourists, pipe-smoking novelists and unruly schoolchildren. Sempe is equally adept at capturing the little indignities (and triumphs) of everyday life as he is at high farce and physical comedy. The captions were translated by Anthea Bell, who also helped to bring Asterix the Gaul to the English-speaking world."--Jacket

Monsieur Lambert by Sempé( Book )

23 editions published between 1965 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Monsieur Lambert is a gentle, and unmistakably French, graphic novel with text and pictures by one of the world's best-loved illustrators. Jean-Jacques Sempe offers a glimpse of the everyday lives and secret passions of the regulars in a small Parisian bistro. When Monsieur Lambert does not turn up for lunch at his usual time, the other regulars speculate that he must have met a woman. How else can they explain his strange new behaviour? The diners start discussing women they have loved and lost and, in doing so, they reveal unexpected facets of their own lives and personalities." "The restaurant and its regulars are brought to life vividly in a series of drawings which, together with handwritten dialogue and a laconic commentary, display Sempe's signature unerring eye and ear for the telling details of human behaviour. The text was translated from French by award-winning translator Anthea Bell."--Jacket
Nicholas on holiday by Goscinny( Book )

9 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and French and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nicholas on Holiday" contains eighteen new stories, all of which take place during the long summer break from school. An only child, Nicholas's touchingly naive reaction to situations is often at odds with that of the adults around him. Whether he's staying at a seaside hotel with his parents or making new friends at a holiday camp for children, Nicholas's efforts to keep himself and his gang amused, even when it's raining outside, always result in unexpected and delightful chaos. In "Nicholas", Goscinny and Sempe have created an archetypal schoolchild whose world of mishaps, confusions and downright naughtiness will raise a smile, whatever the age of the reader. Written between 1959 and 1965, these classic books are continually reprinted around the globe and offer not only a hilarious and entertaining read, but a vivid description of French life and culture

Mixed messages by Sempé( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and French and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean-Jacques Sempe's witty drawings and keen eye for the finer points of the human condition have delighted readers in France and beyond for over forty years. Now, his sharply observed and beautifully drawn cartoons are available in English for the first time." "In 'Mixed Messages', his most recent collection of drawings, Sempe turns his attention to the trappings of modern life, from mobile phones to designer water. He also takes a fresh look at some of his favourite topics and archetypes, such as struggling artists, aloof psychiatrists and unhappy couples. Whether he's poking fun at the urbane patrons of fashionable restaurants or the inhabitants of sleepy hamlets, Sempe treats all his subjects with equal amounts of insight and affection. The captions were translated by Anthea Bell, who also helped to bring Asterix the Gaul to the English-speaking world."--Jacket
