BCBF2020 Online Special Edition | The Winners of the BolognaRagazzi Award - COMICS EARLY READER CATEGORY

Speakers: Ricardo Liniers, Author and Artist; Françoise Mouly, Editorial Director, Toon Books. In conversation with Emilio Varrà, Hamelin Associazione Culturale What the jury said on WRITTEN AND DRAWN BY HENRIETTA (Toon Books, USA, 2015 - Colours and lettering by Rémi Chaurand): “The jury was charmed by Liniers celebration of imagination and the creative process as depicted through the vivid drawings and wildly inventive stories of Henrietta, a young girl with a brand new box of colored pencils. Liniers draws Henrietta in a series of subdued comic sequences on pages that are very quickly high-jacked by the extravagant, colorful, crazed energy of Henrietta’s childlike pencil drawings, which she uses to tell the story of a three headed monster with only two hats, and the wildly funny search for the missing hat inside her apparently huge wardrobe."
