What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Soar over Paris and see the city as it’s never been seen before: from the Eiffel Tower in flight! The Eiffel Tower is bored today Wouldn’t it be nice to fly away? Paris is full of things to do – The Tower would like to see them too The Tower takes off for the day To watch the city work and play . . . The Eiffel Tower is bored … so it decides to cut loose and fly over Paris! Sailing through the night air, it glides over the Seine; a short hop away, it finds the Opéra. It weaves through crowds on the streets and in the department stores, falls asleep in the sun, and wakes up to the jangling bells of Notre Dame. This beautifully crafted book, brought to intricate, magical life by Hélène Druvert’s ornate lasercuts, is a wonderfully imaginative introduction to Paris and its monuments for young children.

5.0 / 7.0

This book is truly unlike anything else we own! The illustrations consist mainly of intricate paper cuts, which are lovely and really kind of magical. It’s a really neat way to see Parisian landmarks. The only downside is that it seems so fragile and delicate that I wouldn’t want to let my little kids actually touch the book.
