Description

Out of print. This oversize deluxe edition is two inches taller and wider than the regular French edition and a full third larger than the American edition (15 inches vs 10 inches). Basically the American edition is a piece of crap compared to this!

This deluxe edition also adds six pages of sketches and drawings, layouts, penciled pages, and other art. It is limited to 3000 copies, and accompanied by a beautiful 9 x 13 inch color art print, numbered and limited to 3000 copies.

A graphic novel inspired by Animal Farm, beautifully illustrated by Felix Delep. Felix draws a variety of farm animals with incredible fluidity and the expressions and personality are so strong, it's hard to believe Le Château des animaux is his very first series.

The second volume of a planned four volumes.

From the publisher:

Resistance through nonviolence

Winter has come to the castle. The climate is harsh for its inhabitants, especially since President Silvio continues his reign of terror... But Miss B and her friends, the rabbit Caesar and the rat Azélar, have not had their last word.

Baptized "the Daisies", their movement continues to enrage the dictator bull, refusing to wear bell collars and demanding free wood for all animals. To be better heard, these courageous companions brave the cold every night holding a sit-in under Silvio's windows. But for Miss B, defeating the dictatorship can only be done by avoiding the most formidable of traps: the temptation to violence. Will she manage to convince her friends to resist peacefully? The challenge seems very difficult...

Résumé

La résistance par la non-violence

L'hiver a gagné le château. Le climat est rude pour ses habitants, d'autant que le Président Silvio continue de faire régner la terreur... Mais Miss B et ses amis, le lapin César et le rat Azélar, n'ont pas dit leur dernier mot.

Baptisé « les Marguerites », leur mouvement, continue les outrances au taureau dictateur, refusant le port de collier à grelots et exigeant la gratuité du bois pour tous les animaux. Pour être mieux entendus, ces courageux compagnons bravent le froid chaque nuit pour faire un sit-in sous les fenêtres de Silvio. Mais pour Miss B, vaincre la dictature ne peut se faire qu'en évitant le plus redoutable des pièges : la tentation de la violence. Parviendra t-elle à convaincre ses amis de résister pacifiquement ? Le défi semble bien difficile...
