Stig and Tilde
Max de Radigues
Daring escapades abound in the action-packed adventures of plucky twins, Stig & Tilde.
Keeping with a local tradition, Stig and Tilde hop on a dinghy and head to a desert island to survive alone without adult supervision. However, a unexpected detour leads them to the wrong island and it looks like it’s inhabited by something that isn’t too fond of guests…
"This Belgian import has a simple story and cleanly drawn style, yet delivers an utterly mysterious fascination, great for kids on the older end of the 7-12 range." --The New York Times "A first purchase for libraries with robust graphic novel collections." --School Library Journal "[De Radigues] renders his characters in a very simplified form [...] So how does he make them emote? He gets a lot out of those emanata, whether they're conveying surprise, dizziness, rage, fear, annoyance, confusion, relief or something else. He also gets an impressive range of feelings into the body language, simple as it is. [...] You wouldn't be wrong to see de Radigues working in parallel to Charles Forsman." --The Comics Journal "De Radigues has crafted a fun, somewhat old-fashioned adventure for kids that holds a few surprises. He also drifts into some darker territory that I certainly didn't expect, but handles perfectly, and these are welcome aspects since they add an actual sense of danger to the story, which is pretty light-hearted." --The Beat
