LA PLUCHE by Camille & Bill Sokol


Email this review


In French (printed in one color) and English (printed in another), shaggy- haired La Pluche and his scraggly wife converse about their abject state-- they have hangers but no clothes, a house with detached stairs. But, whether it's a solitary fly in the sky, a run-down auto, or their five--no, four-- children, it's all quietly leasing and quite acceptable to the bizarre little man and his spouse. The stylized illustrations are comical but in a few cases crowded on the pages in confusing manner, unlike those in Dis-Moi (1963, p.235, J-89) by the same authors.
