My Mommy is in America and Met Buffalo Bill is a first-time English edition of the award-winning French graphic novel by Jean Regnaud and Emile Bravo. Fanfare / Ponent Mon presents this touching graphic novel in full-color, in an over-sized hardcover format.

Told from a young boy's point of view, My Mommy is a slice-of-life story about a child's remembrance of his school days in a small French town and the fanciful postcards he receives from his mother, who's off traveling the world – or is she?

Emile Bravo was also nominated for the 2008 Eisner Awards for his short story, "Young Americans," in Mome #8 from Fantagraphics.
