She is one of the favorite cartoon heroines of children aged 7 to 12. In eight years, Mortelle Adèle has conquered a mixed readership, even breaking sales records during confinement. This unruly little red-haired girl has already been the subject of 17 volumes of comics and novels as well. The new album Mortelle Adèle et la galaxie des bizarres, illustrated by Diane de Feyer, has just been released by Bayard Jeunesse. Decryption of a phenomenon.
