Sibyl-Anne and the Honeybees picks up right where its predecessor left off: With the plucky field mouse and her motley group of friends retrenched on the tiny island in the middle of the lake, surrounded by the marauding hordes of rats.

Alas, tiring of the standoff and fearing an imminent attack by sea, the courageous but ill-advised Sergeant Verboten decides to play the hero and sneak off to attempt to destroy the rat flotilla. When he is captured and used as a hostage, tied to the main mast of a rat destroyer no less, it’s the beginning of a rat-and-mouse game, the tide of which turns only with the appearance of an unexpected, yellow-and-black-striped group of tiny allies whom our heroine has befriended...

One of the great classics of Franco-Belgian comics from the pages of the legendary Spirou magazine, Raymond Macherot's Sibyl-Anne is being released in English for the first time. Fifty years after its original release, its bucolic charms are as fresh as ever.

"Raymond Macherot is Walt Disney's equal in his skill at bringing out the personalities of his animal characters." – Hergé

Praise for Sibyl-Anne Vs. Ratticus:

"Macherot's plotting is lively and unexpected... Thompson’s translation is colloquial and funny...” – Publishers Weekly

"...[T]he Sibyl-Anne book is... excellent..., showing off the strengths of the Eurocomics tradition, with its sprawling narratives spread across small panels, mixing cartoony characters and elaborate backgrounds." – Noel Murray, The A.V. Club

“Macherot's animals are cute and full of character, from the porcupine sheriff to the cigar-smoking, shop-keeping bird. Visually they resemble Walt Kelly’s Pogo, with backgrounds that will look familiar to anybody who ever watched The Smurfs cartoon.... the adorable art, amiable characters, and a thrilling late-story air battle will keep you interested until the end. Best of all are the brief glimpses at domestic country mouse mundanity, like Sibyl-Anne’s love for baking pies and the aside where she and Boomer talk about how nice a certain table and its parasol are.” – Paste
