Esther Super star !

Esther, whose author follows the daily life since the age of 10 (and until she is 18), grows up. Now a high school student, and like an ordinary teenager, she questions everything and revolts against everything: starting with her parents whom she dares to brave to go to a party. Caught between her desire for independence and the anxiety of growing up, Esther is torn: “This paradox is, I believe, something universal, and it’s very funny to observe! » amusedly reports Riad Sattouf. Sold over a million copies for the first six volumes, “Les Cahiers d’Esther” continues to win over new readers, as evidenced by the return to the charts in 7eposition, from the first volume of the series: “History of my 10 years”. It is true that this major sociological testimony, a reflection of our time as had been the audiovisual documentary by Michel Fresnel in the 1980s or his retelling of the genre by François Chevré (“Generation 2008”) currently in progress, is accompanied by notoriety through various distribution media, including the adaptation of the first three albums into cartoons on Canal +, available on YouYube. And when he expresses himself, Riad Sattouf often does so via Esther, on his social networks, with his 265,000 subscribers on Instagram, 115,000 on Facebook and 85,000 on Twitter. The author has just, on the occasion of the publication of his new album, to open his account on TikTok.

Another box of the moment, the two volumes of “Elles” are still present in the ranking (5e and 11e). The bowl of the week is to be credited (or debited, rather!) to “The Legendaries: The Chronicles of Darkhell” T3, down eight ranks and now 17e of the charts.
