Duel in The Sun


Duel in The Sun
by Manuel Marsol

When a Native American and a cowboy meet for a duel in the hot summer sun, a series of events keeps them from doing what they are there to do. In this western spoof, illustrated brilliantly in “frames,” there are no good guys or bad guys. The chaps themselves don’t seem to know if they really want to fight or whether they are even enemies. Manuel Marsol’s tongue-in-cheek picture book offers a timeless and timely parable for children and adults about otherness and the futility of fighting.

“Sans aucun doute l’un des meilleurs albums jeunesse de ce début d’année”
Libération

“Comique de situation et de répétition, le premier western non violent pour les enfants, simple mais terriblement efficace et original, on entend presque la musique!”
