Based on true stories told weekly by Esther A.*, Esther’s Notebooks draw us into the daily life of a 10-year-old girl talking about school, friends, family and pop stars.

Each album contains 52 stories, for the 52 weeks of the year. Allary Editions will publish one volume per year, nine volumes in total. Each album covers one year in the life of Esther, covering her 10th through her 18th year.

Esther is a 12-year-old student at a prestigious college in the center of Paris. Esther is now a pre-teen! The presidential elections, her first cell phone, her hamster Manuela, the arrival of acne, her conspiring brother, her left-wing partisan father, her far-right voting grandmother, President Macron, the Illuminati, and her love for sausage-apricot cake… Esther talks about everything!
