Studying, working at the convenience store, joining a band, playing hockey, taking dancing lessons...that’s how young Quebecers kept themselves occupied way back in 1210, in the good old medieval days! Humour based on unfortunately forgotten historical events, the Comment devenir une légende (how to become a legend) series serves up a slice of life medieval style with Matt LeGrand, son and grandson of real legendary heroes, who absolutely wants to make his own mark on history, too. To do this, he’s counting on help from his trusty mates: a barbarian singer-dancer, a candy-pink princess, an elf with special powers, and a noble snob and braggart. With a cast of colourful characters, second-grade reading level, reinvented historical reality, anachronisms galore, and tongue-in-cheek winks to the future (our present), Comment devenir une légende is adrift in a universe that’s totally cracked and absolutely refreshing!
