Ariol: Just A Donkey Like You And Me is part funny-animal book and part elementary-school Archie comic, all about a young donkey who pals around with his classmates—including a pig, a dog, a goat, and a fly—while wishing he could be more like his favorite superhero, Thunder Horse … The tone’s light and the art’s outstanding, reminiscent of Richard Scarry, but with a rougher edge. If Ariol were a Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon series, it’d be one of the best on cable; as a book series (with more volumes already in the process of being imported and translated), Ariol’s mix of silly and slice-of-life is more than good enough…
