“Madly in love with nature and all kind of animals, big and small, Hausman is one of the most formidable animal illustrators ever. His passion for the countryside also pushes René Hausman to explore its folklore, its music and its oral literature. He was thus able, from there, to tell us, quite naturally, in comics all about his meetings with elves and witches, his adventures with fantastic animals and his mishaps with human beings which are, for our misfortune, definitely less fantastic.”
