Marc Boutavant

Children’s book author and illustrator to visit FASP in March

We are pleased to announce that the French children’s book author and illustrator Marc Boutavant will be visiting FASP on March 13. He will discuss his latest book, Dumpster Dog, co-written with Colas Gutman, with our students. Through its charmingly awkward canine protagonist Dumpster Dog, he shows kids that accepting differences is a key to better understanding one another.


Boutavant is well known for his bestselling children’s series “Around the World with Mouk” as well as his monthly “Ariol” comic strip in J’aime lire, a magazine for young readers.

Co-sponsored by the French American School of Princeton, the Princeton Public library and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
