Sophie's world. Vol. I, From Socrates to Galileo / Jostein Gaarder ; art by Nicoby ; adapted by Vincent Zabus.


One day, Sophie receives a cryptic letter posing an intriguing question: “Who are you?” A second message soon follows: “Where does the world come from?” It is the beginning of an unusual correspondence between our curious young heroine and her mysterious penpal. As the questions begin to pile up, Sophie is propelled headlong into a startling adventure through the history of Western philosophy. Her search for answers will see her explore each of the major schools of thought, as she tries to uncover the true nature of the letters, her secretive teacher… and, above all, herself! In this witty comics adaptation, Zabus and Nicoby have reinvented Jostein Gaarder’s novel of ideas--a beloved bestseller that has already won the hearts of over 50 million readers around the world--to bring Sophie’s charming exploration of meaning and existence to a whole new medium.
