Marc Boutavant in Elementary Schools and at the Miami Book Fair [fr]

Marc Boutavant will be touring in South Florida from November 21 to November 24. Meet him in Miami’s Elementary Schools and at the Miami Book Fair !

Marc Boutavant is the award-winning author and illustrator of the bestselling "Around the World" with Mouk. In the Mouk series of books, now an animated tv serie, readers are taken on adventures by a busy little bear (Mouk) and his world of animal friends. The pages full of color, characters and actions, take the readers to Canada, the South American Pampas, the vast Sahara, and beyond.


For years, Boutavant has drawn the popular Ariol comic strip in J’aime lire, a French monthly magazine for young readers. Two titles in a series of books based on the strip, Ariol: Just a Donkey Like You and Me, and Ariol: Thunder Horse, are now available in English translation. Like Mouk, Ariol has been adapted into an animated tv series.


His cartoons for children (ages 7-12) and picture books for younger readers (ages 4-6), including The Great House Hunt, a well reviewed bestseller in France, have made him a widely sought after illustrator.
Boutavant’s lively, expressive and inventive illustrations are attractive to children in their seeming simplicity and to parents in the complexity they distil. He has worked for a number of French children’s publishers, including Sarbacane, Editions Mila and Bayard.

This illustrator also had the opportunity to interact with his audience at Books and Books in Coral Gables.

Marc will be in Miami and will speak to our kids at:
  • Coconut Grove Elementary on November 21st
  • Sunset Elementary on November 22nd
