    “This story dealing with self-acceptance is simple but strong and it is illustrated with humor and

    details. The white backgrounds of the drawings highlight the main message that’s carried by the text.”
    Marie Fradette, La Presse


    “You'll probably laugh again and again while following Daley B. through his existential quest…”

    Amélie Gaudreau, Le Devoir


    “Characterized by a repetitive

    rhythmic structure and concluding in a surprising way, this story brings out Daley B.’s crazy assumptions about his own status, his way of living and his physiognomy.”
