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 discover Love in this magical and surreal adventure.
Immerse yourself in the world of Little Pierrot and see it through his eyes. Mr. Snail helps Little Pierrot understand some of the harder things to grasp in life, while Little Pierrot himself begins to discover new feelings towards one of his classmates. In this poetic yet humorous take on young love, Little Pierrot's outlook shines through in every situation, like the moon in a clear night sky.
