Order RED JIM by Nathalie Jean-Bart for Christmas, directly from its author (namely me)

October 31, 2008

With Christmas just around the corner, here is a suggestion for a gift that will entertain and instruct while having fun, kids and big kids of all ages

I am the author and illustrator of a bilingual, French-English, children’s book published recently.

RED JIM by Nathalie Jean-Bart- Tartamudo Publishing

The book is hardback and has received positive reviews from professional magazines specialised in children’s literature (click the link to the Squidoo lens on Red Jim to read the review). But, while you can order it from any good bookshop, online and offline, I would like to make you know that you can order copies of “Red Jim” directly from me, its author. I have a limited amount of copies available. The additional interest (and excitement!) of ordering the book directly from me is that you can have the book autographed/signed by the author to your specifications, and buy it at the normal retail price: 12 Euros or £9.00, plus the postage costs (I will need to know where the book is going in order to calculate the delivery costs). I will send anywhere in the world and will accept payment preferably via Paypal: please note Paypal does accept credit card payment. Any other form of payment will need to be discussed first. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity: get in touch if you are interested and want to find out more at cheerfulmadness@gmail.com

La même chose en Français:
Vous pouvez maintenant commander le livre “Red Jim” directement chez son auteur!! J’ai en effet un nombre limité de copies en ma possession: l’intérêt et le bonus de commander le livre directement chez moi, réside dans le fait que vous pouvez l’obtenir dédicacé/signé selon vos propres spécifications. Le livre est vendu à son prix normal (12 Euros ou 9 livres Sterling), les frais de port y étant ajouté: notez bien que j’aurai besoin de savoir où va le livre pour calculer les frais d’envoi. “Red Jim” est livré partout dans le monde et j’accepte tout paiement préférablement par Paypal (notez que Paypal accepte aussi les paiements par cartes de credit); pour toute autre forme de paiement, s’il vous plait, parlez-en avec moi au préalable. Ne ratez pas cette opportunité: contactez-moi, si vous êtes intéressé, à l’adresse suivante:

RED JIM by Nathalie Jean-Bart ‘s first review

January 14, 2008

Hello,

My children’s book Red Jim has received its first review and a very positive one as well in the professional French magazine “L’Avis Des Bulles”.


The review is quoted below (in French), to make it searchable (and findable by search engines)

RED JIM

ONE-SHOT

ÉDITEUR Tartamudo

SCÉNARISTE JEAN-BART Nathalie
DESSINATEUR JEAN-BART Nathalie
COLORISTE JEAN-BART Nathalie

GENRE Conte moderne
ÂGE 7 ans et +
PUBLIC Grand public
PRIX 12 €

Harry et Henry sont deux chiens de garde aussi gras que stupides. Comme ces cabots s’ennuient, ils jouent avec les autres animaux: ils arrachent la queue des renards, le fond du pantalon du facteur etc.
Un jour où leur ennui était à son comble, un lapin se présente à eux, avec, dans les mains, une pancarte sur laquelle est marqué « Attrapez-moi !!». Les chiens courent donc après le gibier aux longues oreilles, et sont alors attirés dans une soucoupe volante, d’où semble venir le lapin. Ils se retrouvent dès lors prisonniers des “Lapins de l’espace”, craints dans tout l’univers, même des fourmis géantes de Betelgeuse. Nos deux chiens, devant choisir comment être mangés, vont faire enlever Billy le chat, qui va alors, avec ruse, les tirer d’une bien mauvaise situation.

Ce livre est un véritable enchantement! Il est construit comme suit: du texte sur
la page de gauche, des dessins sur la page de droite. L’histoire est très drôle, supportée
par des dessins très expressifs qui font véritablement rire. Nathalie JEAN-BART
joue avec maîtrise avec la typographie du texte, la mise en page des dessins
et la couleur de ces derniers. L’auteur écrit aussi en deux langues; en effet sur une
même page, le texte est rédigé en français et en anglais. Nathalie JEAN-BART étant
française et habitant à Londres, une partie n’est pas la traduction de l’autre. Ainsi
l’auteur glisse des jeux de mot dans les textes français qui ne peuvent apparaître
dans le texte anglais, et vice versa. Lire le texte dans les deux langues n’apparaît
plus fastidieux (enfin… ça l’est moins). Un livre divertissant, qui promet un bon
moment de lecture!

And the approximative translation of the review in English, by yours truly :

Harry and Henry are two guard dogs as fat as they are stupid. But they are also very bored, so bored in fact,  they only find some enjoyment by playing with other animals: they tear foxes’ tails off and the bottom of the postman’s trousers, etc.
One day, as the two dogs are bored to the extreme, a rabbit turns up in front of them, with a sign in his paws saying “Catch me!!”. The dogs are only too happy to oblige and chase the rabbit, until they are all sucked up inside a flying saucer, where the rabbit seems to have come from in the first place.
From now on, Harry and Henry are held prisoners by the Space Rabbits, feared across the all universe and, even by the Giant Ants from Betelgeuse. The two dogs, forced to choose how they are going to be eaten, make the Space Rabbits kidnap Billy the cat who will ultimately trick their way out of trouble.

This book is a pure delight! It is built as follow: the text is on the left page and the drawings on the right page. The story is very funny and supported by very expressive cartoons that cause genuine hilarity. Nathalie Jean-Bart shows skill in playing with the typography of the text, the layout and colours of the drawings. The author’s also written the story in two languages: the text is told in French and English on the same page. Nathalie being French and living in London, parts of the text aren’t the literal translation of the others. The author inserts puns in the text in French that cannot appear in English and vice versa. Consequently, reading the text in both languages doesn’t seem tedious anymore (at least, not as much…).
An entertaining book that promises enjoyable reading!
