The rabbi's cat by Joann Sfar( Book )
in English and held by 827 libraries worldwide
When the rabbi's cat wins the gift of speech by swallowing a parakeet, he uses it both to tell lies (that he didn't eat the parakeet, for example) and to tell his own story. But now that he's lied, the rabbi forbids him from talking to his daughter, Zlabya, and vows to educate him in the Torah. For his part, the cat wants to study Kabbalah and he wants a bar mitzvah. But the question of whether a feline can be Jewish must first be intensely debated by the cat and his master. When Zlabya falls in love with a dashing young rabbi, both are crestfallen and jealous, but the journey to meet the young man's secular family in Paris provides additional opportunities for the rabbi and his cat to discuss both the important and petty details of life. Vibrant with the colors, textures, and feeling of a lost world (one where Jews and Arabs easily co-existed) "The Rabbi's Cat is populated with wholly believable and endearing people and one truly unforgettable cat

The rabbi's cat by Joann Sfar( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 301 libraries worldwide
"Joann Sfar's beloved, humorous, and wise talking cat is back for more beautifully illustrated adventures in Algiers and across Africa in the 1930s. While the rabbi is away, his cat tags along with Malka of the Lions (the rabbi's enigmatic cousin), who roams the desert with his ferocious-on-demand lion. Some believe Malka to be a pious Jew, others think he's a shrewd womanizer, but the cat will be the one to discover the surprising truth." "Back in Algiers, the rabbi's daughter, Zlabya, and her new husband fill the house with their fighting, while the city around them fills with a rising tide of anti-Semitism. On a whim, the rabbi's cat, the rabbi, a sheik (also a cousin of the rabbi), and a very misplaced Russian painter set out on a fantastic journey (even encountering a young reporter named Tintin in the Congo) in search of an African Jerusalem. It turns out to be very fortuitous that the rabbi's cat is not just a talking cat, but a multilingual talking cat"--Jacket

Taking the best from La Vie En Rose and Amelie renowned comic book artist Joann Sfar's Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life is a completely original take on one of France's greatest mavericks, the illustrious and infamous Jewish singer-songwriter, Serge Gainsbourg (Eric Elmosnino). Born Lucien Ginsburg to Russian-Jewish parents, Sfar follows him from his precocious childhood in Nazi-occupied Paris, to his beginnings as small time jazz musician and finally pop superstar. Along the way he romances many of the era's most beautiful women, including Juliette Greco (Anna Mouglalis), Brigitte Bardot (Laetitia Casta) and Jane Birkin (Lucy Gordon). Employing a witty surrealistic style and a soundtrack that includes many of the musician's greatest hits, Gainsbourg: A Heroic LIfe is a quintessential time capsule to 1960's Paris. Winner!

« La personnalité baroque de Joann Sfar domine le paysage de la création contemporaine en bande dessinée. En quinze ans de carrière, il a constamment été sous le feu des projecteurs, bâtissant une œuvre généreuse, tentaculaire, protéiforme. 'Le Chat du rabbin', 'Petit Vampire', 'Pascin', 'Donjon', 'Klezmer' sont quelques-unes des œuvres phares d'un auteur qui ne cesse d'écrire, pour lui-même ou ses complices (David B, Emmanuel Guibert, Lewis Trondheim, Christophe Blain, José Luis Munuera, Hervé Tanquerelle, Pénélope Bagieu, Clément Oubrerie). Sfar est aussi réalisateur de films (quatre César et un Grand Prix du festival d'Annecy), il est devenu directeur de collection chez Gallimard et commissaire d'exposition ('Brassens' à la Cité de la Musique), et il se prépare à investir massivement le champ romanesque. 'Recordman' des interviews, il va plus loin dans ce livre de conversations et se livre comme jamais. Thierre Groensteen l'interroge méthodiquement sur sa vie et son oeuvre (l'explication par la biographie étant, chez Sfar, déterminante) et, en grand spécialiste de la bande dessinée, met le doigt sur tous les aspects de son art poétique, le faisant inlassablement parler de sa passion : le dessin. »--
