The Professor's Daughter, Joann Sfar & Emmanuel Guibert

I bought this on a whim because of the beautiful illustrations and I am so glad that I did. It is quick, light, and fun. Lillian is the bored daughter of a famous Egyptologist. She takes out one of her father's mummies from the museum and promptly falls in love. From there the plot turns into a screwball comedy. This is one of my favorite panels:

I would read more of Lillian & Imhotep's adventures if they are ever published. The artwork would make great prints as well.
