Poppy and Sam and the Leaf Thief

Poppy and Sam and the Leaf Thief


Text & illustrations: Cathon


“Where were you last night?” Poppy and Sam have launched an investigation: they want to find out who nibbled their dear friend Basil’s leaves. None of the insects will own up to it. They need a way to unmask the offender. But that is easier said than done! They will have to show a lot of ingenuity.

    “This book is a perfect introduction to detective stories: readers can posit theories as Poppy’s solutions prove to be ineffective. It is also a great way to discover comics for young readers who want to take the plunge.”

    Pierre-Alexandre Bonin, Campagne pour la lecture


    “Everything about this story is sweet and charming, the beauty of the illustrations, the pretty colours and the tone of the “garden-variety” investigation that takes us delightfully back to the grace and gauziness of being four years old.”

    Hélène Brosseau, Librairie Monet (Montréal)


    “From insects with well-sketched personalities to little Poppy’s ingenuity, this colourful little comic with timeless charm is the perfect introduction to the genre and leaves readers with a smile.”
    Zoé Langlois, Les libraires Magazine
