Es the house husband taking care of the kids and the house while trying to go out and raw what he sees around him in this country full of complexities and paradoxes This graphic novel will have you laughing shaking your head and reflecting over all that you will learn The artwork is simple but efficient explaining all about Israel It s a must for those that Those Who Can, Teach: What It Takes To Make the Next Generation don t understand the Middle East conflict Since it s told from an outsider living in Israel the story rings true from his reaction and to the adventures he is barely ready to experience I highly recommend this one I have to thank Kim for suggesting this one to me I started this book over a year ago and put it back on shelfon t know why For me it was a great reminder of why I find Israel and Palestine so fascinating and scary as well If you re in need of easy but very informative introduction to lifehistory of Israel and Palestine pick it up It s served with a bit of humour and even the most How to Draw Inky Wonderlands: Create and Colour Your Own Magical Adventure drastic elements are left to imagination rather than exhibitionisticallyisplay on pages Great and very informative graphic journal Thank you God that I m an atheist That s what Guy Delisle thinks when he witnesses the spectacle of the religions in the region of Jerusalem His character in the book is a rather silly guy At least he wants you to think he s an idiot who is surprised with everything and everyone he encounters in this Holy Land His observations are La maison de Mélisse : Harmonisation intérieure down to earthish and unjudgmental He s like a curious childiscovering new things asking a lot of uestions and making remarks like a child would o uestions adults would answer with because and remarks that make adults blush Sometimes this is very funny Some readers find some of these funny cartoons respectless I would highly recommend them to try a bit harder to laugh with it Because isn t it normal that for an outsider another culture can be very weird There is some controversy about an introductory panel in the book that says Passover Jewish Easter By no means this is idiotic or respectless In fact those religious festivals are linked Easter is related to Passover of which it is regarded the Christian fulfillment This translation is not uncommon I ve heard it before Other reviewers said that the author is pro palestinian I on t agree with that Because I read the reviews before I started to read I was very attentive and at no time id I find the author judgmental He only escribed the things he experienced saw and heard from other people he encountered Also one must not forget his wife worked for octors without borders in Gaza and they lived in East Jerusalem for a year and had regular contacts with other expats most of them also working in Palestine If we bear this in mind we have to conclude he id his very best not to be judgmental RespectNo wonder he won the prize for the best book at the international comic book festival in Angoul me 2012 Also o read the review of Paul Bryant I have to admit his is a lot better than mine This is an

also curious interested observant funny uestioning he tackles a wide variety of topics ranging from peculiar religious practices to the 2008 2009 Gaza War and all the while he immortalizes in his
