Boloney Illustrates New Children’s Book. Seriously!


There is exciting news here at Mustard and Boloney’s cartoon diner! Alexandre Rouillard (Boloney) has just completed illustrating a brand new children’s book called: Lulupop, Pants! No Chance! 

And, I have been privileged enough to receive an advance copy. I can honestly say that the story is strong and of course Alexandre’s artistry – as always – is impeccable. His style is a departure from our usual offerings here on our comedic diner but then it needs to be, as the book is designed for, well, why not let the author herself describe it? Take it away Susan Lanyi.

Pants! No Chance! is a picture book directed at preschool and primary school children.  The story focuses on Lulupop, a girl who simply loves dresses and does not like wearing pants.  Lulupop and her mother struggle daily but Lulupop is a feisty heroine with a mind of her own and she insists on wearing dresses no matter what the situation.  Through her own personal experience Lulupop eventually understands in particular situations it is more sensible to wear pants.


The inspiration for the main character Lulupop and “Pants! No Chance!” was Susan Lanyi’s three year-old daughter Leah who always wanted to wear dresses.   Susan believed that she was not the only one living this battle with her preschooler.  Other parents must have had similar experiences.  Thus the idea for Pants! No Chance! was born.



Thanks Susan for visiting our diner and bringing this book to our attention.  And, Alexandre Rouillard’s stunning water-colors certainly have brought life and breath to Lulupop the “Girl Who Loves Dresses.”
