Author(s): Jean-Jacques Sempe
Another classic title from world-renowned cartoonist Jean-Jacques Sempe, this illustrated children's book, originally published in French in 1969, tells the story of Martin Pebble, a little boy who has something unusual the matter with him: he keeps blushing all the time for no particular reason. When he meets another little boy who sneezes all the time for no particular reason, it's the beginning of a life-long friendship. Featuring the inimitable drawings and perfectly-judged text of Jean-Jacques Sempe, this funny and charming book will be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
