DESCRIPTION: An original presentation for eight tales of the sea. This book 
provides, in a picture storybook format, dark poetic stories with spectacular 
drawings. –   Recommended

The picture storybook has proved very popular and some of the finest have been 
published in France and North America. Riff Reb's was born in Algeria, but lived 
his formative years in Le Havre.  Riff Reb's has become a leading figure in a new 
school of comic books and this selection of stories has been collected and translated 
into English in this new book.

This is a very interesting presentation and the illustration is spectacular, depicting 
deep emotions by the use of dramatic staging of macabre colours, shading and 
cartoon faces. It has taken established stories that were originally textual and 
produced great force through the visual treatment.
