Reviews - What do customers think about Yakari and Great Eagle (Yakari)?
Franco-Belgian Comic Book Series Sep 20, 2008
The team of Job and Derib published their first Yakari comic book story in 1973. They have gone on to publish thirty three additional volumes and produced an animated television series. Their series has also been translated into seventeen languages. Yakari has finally become available in English due to the efforts of the British publishing company, "9th Cinebook". As of this review, they have published six Yakari volumes and hopefully they will be able to roll out additional volumes.
The Yakari series revolves around the adventures of a small Sioux boy who has the ability to speak with animals. In turn, the stories unfold around his encounters with North American animals. "Yakari and the Great Eagle" is the first book in the series and introduces the key characters, Rainbow his best friend, Great Eagle his totem and Little Thunder his pony.
The Yakari series is geared towards young children. It is successful because of the high quality illustrations that are so characteristic of the Franco-Belgian school of comic book design. The only downside is that the protrayal of Native American culture seems dated by today's standards. Hopefully, later volumes will come more into line with current values. Overall, this is a beautiful series of books and both parents and children will enjoy reading them. Recommended.
