By the author of Tintin in Thailand
After the success of the first edition, the facetious and truculent Baudoin de Duve returns with a new presentation of his famous collection of sketches. In 1996, this Belgian compatriot of Hergé authored Tintin in Thailand. He had previously produced cartoons for Chiang Mai News, an English language magazine.

Many of his Gavroche cartoons, some previously unpublished, have now been assembled in one volume with a preface by the famous Belgian comedian Stephane Steeman.
