Zoo is a central work in Frank Pé's fascinatingly beautiful career. This great animal cartoonist is able to transpose the torments of the animal world with infinite sensitivity. He is one of the representatives of the "ecological conscience" in comics, already present in his first works such as Broussaille. Here we find Manon in her natural, animal state, among her friends the animals of the Zoo, radiant and free. There is something of Noah's Ark in this representation. In the Bible, Noah's wife has no name. Is her name Manon?
