Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like some other kids his age, Billy Fog has to wear glasses. But Billy has the gift of Trouble Sight, so when he takes his glasses off, he sees all the things that other kids can't: ghosts and ghouls, vampires and monsters, a world of darkness and danger, and above all the thing that kids aren't supposed to see: death! Is Trouble Sight a gift, then, or a curse?

Synopsis:

Like some other kids his age, Billy Fog has to wear glasses. But Billy has the gift of Trouble Sight, so when he takes his glasses off, he sees all the things that other kids cant—ghosts and ghouls, vampires and monsters, a world of darkness and danger and above all the thing that kids arent supposed to see: death. Is Trouble Sight a gift, then, or a curse? A new kind of graphic novel—part storybook, part fable, part gazetteer and bestiary of the horrible and fantastic, inspired by the likes of Tim Burton and Lemony Snicket.

About the Author

Guillaume Bianco was born in 1976. His imagination was fed by folk tales — both new ones such as those in the children’s books of Roald Dahl, and old ones from the collections of Guy de Maupassant — and especially by the songs of Georges Brassens to which he devoted boundless admiration. A bad pipe smoker, he eventually switched to common cigarettes and abandoned his guitar for a pen and paper, his drawings seeming a little more “right.” His wish: to tell stories for adults and children, address taboos, and raise big questions all while entertaining. And with Billy Fog, Eco, and Epictetus published in his native France and soon in America, his wish seems to be coming true!
