Toon Books Adapts French Classic
Claude Ponti's 'Chick and Chickie'
Published: 10/04/2011 12:19am
No American publisher has attempted what Toon Books is doing, providing interesting graphic novels with educator-approved text for readers as young as four years old. In February Toon is presenting Chick and Chickie in Twin Stories, its first volume featuring the art of Claude Ponti, one of the most respected French authors of children’s literature. Ponti has a background in fine art, and his books contain stunning visuals, often with surrealistic dreamlike elements.
The editors at Toon Books took illustrations from Ponti’s Tromboline and Foulbazar series (about two little chicks) and created a new book in the classic Toon Books style with a vetted vocabulary. The art is all Ponti, but the book itself is re-imagined for a young American audience.
