More About Louis I, King of the Sheep by Olivier Tallec
 
 
 
Overview

Readers will delight in Louis's increasingly elaborate fantasy of what comes with being a supreme ruler: the pleasures, the responsibilities, the capriciousness. "What's good for me is good for my people," thinks King Louis in this clever fable about the randomness and absurdity of power, but also its abuses, and the hidden dangers in a society built on conformity. There's loads of wit and humor that will appeal to readers of all ages, but will also serve as a basis for discussing experiences of relevance to children, such as bullying and the power games of the playground.

The work of Olivier Tallec has been described as "sensitive,""stunning," "breathtaking," and "beautiful." Tallec was born in France, in 1970. After graduating from the Ecole Superieure d'Art Graphique in Paris, he worked in advertising as a graphic designer, after which he devoted himself to illustration. Since then he has illustrated more than sixty books.
