Lucky Luke Rivals of Painful Gulch by Goscinny


Lucky Luke Rivals of Painful Gulch by Goscinny

Two rival families live in Painful Gulch: the O'Timmins clan, who have big noses, and the O'Haras, who have big ears. They've been fighting for decades and don't even know why anymore. Lucky Luke is appointed mayor in order to bring peace back to the town. But the men and their thick-headed sense of honour will wreck all of Lucky Luke's plans for reconciliation. Our hero must find a solution!

About the Author

The character of Lucky Luke became a legend thanks to Morris (his creator) and Goscinny. These two giants of the 9th art collaborated with passion for more than 20 years until the death of the famous scriptwriter. Rene Goscinny (Lucky Luke, Asterix, Iznogoud, le Petit Nicolas) is one of the most-read French authors in the world. Approximately 500 million copies of his books have been sold.In 1992, Morris received the Grand Prix Special 20eme Anniversaire from the international comics show at Angouleme, and in 1998, the French Minister of Culture decorated him with the rank of Officier des Arts et des Lettres.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
