The silly logic of a very serious bear!

About the author (2011)

Philippe Coudray loves drawing comics, and his many children's books are often used in schools in his home country of France, where his work was chosen by elementary school students for the prestigious Prix des Écoles d' Angoulême. He relishes any opportunity to collaborate on children's books and comics with his twin brother, Jean-Luc, who is also a humorist. Philippe lives in Bordeaux and enjoys painting, creating stereoscopic images, and traveling each year to Canada, where he searches for Bigfoot.
