The French Fry King Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A delectable feast for French fry lovers the world over, written and illustrated by acclaimed French Canadian artist, Rogé, this wonderful story will amuse, beguile and delight young readers! The French Fry King is a clever tale about dreaming big and finding love, told by a charming sausage dog named Roger.

 

Roger is a sausage dog who is destined for incredible things! He is most definitely NOT the kind of dog that would chase the mailman, chew on bicycle tires, or bark at every car that drives goes by. All of that bores him....

 

He longs to be human, and spends a great deal of time dreaming about his future. For Roger, happiness will only come when he becomes King – King of the French Fries! But will this bring him true happiness?

Review:

"Roger the sausage dog rockets from obscurity to the ownership of an internationally famous chain of french fry stands ('This dog's cooking skills are exceptional!' says one customer), but it's not enough; he wants more out of life. 'People only love me for my fries,' he frets. Fortunately for Roger, happiness — in the form of an entrepreneurial poodle named Charlotte — plies a similar trade in a food cart not far away. Rogé (Noah's Bark) clearly shares some personality traits with his hero. In a series of arch and quirky paintings, even walk-on characters get close attention (a chic mother checks her phone as she walks along with her son, who's dressed in a Batman costume), and inventive thinking abounds (the French Fry King has elongated T-shirts designed to mimic his body shape, seen on one of his fans). While younger readers may be puzzled by Roger's ennui — why shouldn't being the French Fry King make him happy? — and the love-story ending may be a bit cornball, Roger's a memorable guy, and his discovery of fame and love makes good entertainment. Ages 4 — 7." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

About the Author

Rogé began his career as artistic director at the marketing agencies Cossette and LG2. He now dedicates himself full time to illustration, painting and writing. His pictures, and many of his stories are featured in over twenty books for children, several of which have been honored through award nominations, including the prestigious Governor General’s Award which he won in 2006.

 

With one foot on the Magdalen Islands, and another in Montreal, Rogé has a unique perspective on life which provides a delightful, and very funny, view of the world.
