Noël & Léon
Published in France by Grasset-Jeunesse, 2022 Noël is a clown. He comes from a family of very funny clowns, and his job at the circus is to make people laugh. Léon is a skeleton. He’s a member of the most terrifying gang in town, and his job at the haunted house is to make people scream. But there’s one small problem: Noël isn’t funny and Léon isn’t scary. When they meet, both of their careers seem to be at a dead end. Together, through a series of events and failed attempts, they make a serendipitous discovery that changes how they see themselves and how others perceive them. Often the hardest job of all is to surrender to your nature and to accept yourself for who you are. Hardcover, 32pages, 218 x 310mm, glow in the dark cover.
