Ariol Happy as a Pig... by Marc Boutavant, Emmanuel Guibert


Ariol Happy as a Pig... by Marc Boutavant, Emmanuel Guibert

Ariol's best friend, Ramono, is a pig. He's also loud, impulsive, irresponsible, and has a big snout that looks like a light socket. Sneaking into a parking garage to play with fuses, carting grandpa's dog around in a wheelbarrow, wrestling matches with his sister; you may have thought Ariol was trouble enough, but you've never seen Ramono on the loose!
