Bande dessinee artist Alberto Veranda, best known for his heavy medieval fantasies, evinced his playful side with this series of comic strips featuring a little boy. Now in English.
From the publisher:
Little Pierrot--a young boy with a large imagination--and his friendly snail make plans to explore the boundaries of space in this magical and surreal adventure.
Little Pierrot and Mr. Snail's imaginative adventures take them to the stars and beyond! They might fly to the moon on the wings of a well-worn book, or cloud-watch with the new girl in school. Little Pierrot is ever the dreamer, but Mr. Snail is there to bring him back down to earth.
