‘Riad Sattouf is one of the great creators of our time’ Alain de Botton
My name is Esther and I’m 10 years old. I told Riad Sattouf 52 really interesting and totally true stories about me (my family, my friends, my life and all that) and he made this super-realistic book with swear words and stuff because, you know, that’s how us young people talk.
Esther’s Notebooks is the first in a hilarious and heartbreaking graphic novel series that plunges us into a year in the life of a sharp, spirited and very real girl growing up in today’s world. Based on Esther’s own stories, the series will follow her life up to the age of eighteen.
By turns funny and moving, tender and cruel, Esther’s Notebooks is an unfiltered, utterly addictive glimpse into a modern childhood.
