The Mighty Lalouche

Regular price $17.99

One of my all-time-favorite picture books, The Mighty Lalouche, by Matthew Olshan, tells the story of a small French mail carrier who loses his job at the dawn of electric autocars.  In need of employment fast, Lalouche tries his hand as a boxer, with unexpected and utterly delightful results.

The illustrations, done by the unparalleled Sophie Blackall, feature a combination of watercolor paintings and paper cut outs that cast gorgeous shadows throughout the book.

An endlessly clever story, this charming book will forever have a place in my library!
