Now, his sharply observed and beautifully drawn cartoons are available in English for the first time." "Sempe had trouble coming up with a title for this book, and waited until the last possible moment to make a decision - hence the original French title, 'La grande panique'. But there is no cause for alarm, no need to man the proverbial panic stations: this is a classic collection of illustrations and cartoons from one of the masters of the form. In 'Panic Stations', Sempe explores some of his favourite themes, such as unspoken truths, failed communications and hidden talents."--BOOK JACKET."
