Ariol: Just a Donkey Like You and Me

(4) 1-3 Translated by Joe Johnson. Illustrated by Marc Boutavant. In this French import, Ariol and his friends are regular school kids who happen to be various animals. The episodic stories in this loosely drawn graphic novel generally depict Ariol in a benignly funny social interaction. Readers used to stories that pack more of a punch may feel let down by these barely rising and falling arcs.
