   schema:reviewBody ""Jean-Jacques Sempe's witty drawings and keen eye for the finer points of the human condition have delighted readers in France and beyond for over forty years. Now, his sharply observed and beautifully drawn cartoons are available in English for the first time." "'Nothing is Simple' is classic Sempe - a timeless mix of tender moments and absurd situations. Sempe's world is populated by nosy neighbours, mischievous schoolboys and thwarted lovers, by snooty holidaymakers and crowds of frustrated commuters in the big city. Sempe's inimitable drawings are as fresh, engaging and funny today as when they were first published in 1962. The captions were translated by Anthea Bell, who also helped to bring Asterix the Gaul to the English-speaking world."--Jacket." ;
