In 2007, Pénélope Bagieu launched ‘Ma vie est tout à fait fascinante’ (‘My life is absolutely fascinating’), an illustrated blog providing charming, witty glimpses into the daily life of a young Parisienne that truly hit the nail on the head. Not long after, the print version flew off the shelves. She would go on to imagine the adventures of Joséphine and have her illustrations published in the press and in adverts. In 2010, she released her first long narrative, ‘Cadavre exquis’ (‘Exquisite corpse’) and then her first biography, entitled ‘California Dreamin’’ (Harvey Award 2018). In 2016, she bolstered the feminist dimension of her work through the publication of ‘Culottées’ (‘Brazen’), a series of women’s portraits. It met with resounding success: the two volumes of ‘Culottées’ have been translated into twenty languages; they also won an Eisner Award in 2019 and an animated version was produced for France TV. In 2020, the author turned to a younger audience, brilliantly revisiting Roald Dahl’s novel, ‘The Witches’.
