Description

Another masterpiece by Calvo, best known for The Beast is Dead which told the story of the Nazis and WWII in a style resembling a Walt Disney cartoon.

This picture book originally published in 1946 imagines a world populated by anthropomorphic cars six decades before Pixar!

Rosalie is the oldest car in the garage. Her birth dates back to the heroic days of the beginning of the automobile. In the evening, she tells the others about her sweet youth, her loves, and her life fighting in the First World War. Another masterpiece by Calvo in a new edition.

"In a whirlwind of graphic invention and innovative layout, hilarious details and clever word games, Calvo invents a world full of movement and speed. A true orgy of freedom, energy and imagination " - Les Inrockuptibles
