Synopsis

Another classic title from world-renowned cartoonist Jean-Jacques Sempe, this illustrated children's book tells the tale of Martin Pebble, a little boy who blushes a lot and is happiest in the summer, when everyone else has a red face too. He sets out to find a reason for his strange affliction, and finds a friend instead - a boy called Roddy Rackett, who keeps on sneezing, even when he doesn't have a cold. It's the beginning of a life-long friendship. This timeless, touching and very funny story is told through images, speech bubbles and short linking texts. Featuring the inimitable drawings and perfectly-judged words of Jean-Jacques Sempe, book will appeal to readers and Sempe connoisseurs of all ages.
