Publisher Summary

In the City of Lights, where can you go to find the brightest light of them all? Find out in this spunky introduction to Paris shown through the eyes of a curious child.

Paris is the City of Lights. Poppy should know—she lives there.

Each morning, she wakes up to the sound of church bells ringing Ding! Dang! Dong! Each morning, she buys fresh flowers from Madame LesFleur, who has the most brilliant blooms in the city. Each morning, she eats delicious pastries from Monsier LePain’s bakery.

But one morning, she wakes up with a burning question: what light shines the brightest in a city full of them? She and her dog Baguette are about to find out.

A nice look at the city of Paris and it’s many sights, but the illustrations and storytelling itself were just ok.
