A funny, captivating graphic novel about nighttime fears ! Markus has a secret: he’s afraid of the dark, but especially of all those grimy creatures who come into his room at night. To reassure him, one day his mother gives him a gecko like no others, named Arthur-Lorenzo-Dimitri-Olivier. And those horrible critters better watch out!

Reviews

  • Quel bonheur de plonger dans un roman graphique des plus angoissants et hilarants à la fois. - Nicholas Aumais, Chroniqueur jeunesse
  • Tellement charmant! Un roman aux illustrations très expressives, regorgeant de rebondissements et de bestioles dégoutantes qui donnent envie d’avoir un gecko léopard à la maison… - Chrystine Brouillet, Salut, Bonjour
  • C’est très habile comme récit. C’est drôle, très fantaisiste, très intéressant! - Catherine Trudeau, Plus on est de fous, plus on lit (Radio-Canada)
