The Abominable Mr Schteuple

by Grégoire Kogjan & Hippolyte

“Mr. Schteupel is quite abominable. Abominable enough for it to be part of his name”. 

The wickedest creature of imaginary worlds exasperates even witches. The creature will be judged and his sentence will spark the most familiar of traditions.

After “The Last Cowboy” in 2017, Grégoire Kocjan’s latest picture book, again delicate yet rebellious, emerged out of a story thought up to satisfy the curiosity of his children.


Hippolyte, graphic novelist, best known for La Fantaisie des Dieux: Rwanda 1994 (A Whim of the Gods) (Editions des Arènes-2014), Le Maître de Ballantrae (Denoël Graphic-2006-2007) and Dracula after Bram Stoker (Glénat-2004 -2005), here uses crayons and scratch cards, to gently “wind up” the reader.

The truth about a mythical character finally revealed – and a brilliant idea for Christmas.
