Very rare French translation of BB 12.1. Under the title Dutch 'Tom Poes', this picture album is also published in Belgian-Dutch. The figures address each other with 'ge' and not 'U'. The album pictures are bilingual and fully interchangeable with the Belgian / French and Dutch / Dutch editions. Tom Poes experiencing an advertising story for Quaker Oats Grain Products from Rotterdam. Together with Heer Bommel he travels through Africa and the Middle East and even the Arctic, but this time all in French with 85 album pictures. Published by A/S OTA in Copenhagen 1952. In the introductory chapter “Travel Plans” Mr. Bommel and his young friend Tom Poes decide to go on another trip, by boat “To a beautiful country, somewhere in the South”. In the second chapter “The Shipwreck” Tom Poes starts cooking oatmeal porridge right on board the Waggel II. The boat is wrecked in the first storm, but Tom Poes saves the porridge and continues to stir it up, which they enjoy when they wash ashore. In “A Portion of Herenbeer”, Lord Ollie threatens to disappear into the stomachs of the natives, but the porridge turns out to be a good alternative. The travelers escape and in the chapter “The Sick Prince” reach an exotic city where the porridge brings healing to the sultan's son, with a camel as a reward. With that they travel home to the North in “The terror of the Black Mountains”, but in the mountains they encounter a band of robbers. Lord Bommel gets a beating, but boosted by a portion of porridge he accidentally defeats the chieftain. On foot they continue their way in the last chapter “The wolves”. Next, they buy a motorcycle that they crash in a snowstorm. The stockpiles are used to keep wolves at bay and new strength is drawn from porridge. When he got home, Joost immediately puts a pan on the fire with …… oatmeal, whereupon Mr. Bommel speaks the true words: “It's starting to look like a recommendation for eating oatmeal.” "Oh, but it's no ordinary oatmeal!" said Joost. "It's H.-O., with your permission!" … to the galley to prepare the food.
