An Armadillo in Paris

An Armadillo in Paris

This is an adorable new picture book about an armadillo, Arlo, who visits Paris. He follows in the footsteps of his Uncle, Augustin, who leads him on a search for the Iron Lady. The book takes the reader on a journey through Paris, visiting some of the cities most recognized landmarks. The illustrations are delightful, and I loved the use of the armadillo as a character. So unusual.

This book would make a great gift for a child or an adult. Anyone travelling to Paris would get a kick out of reading this story, and even someone only dreaming of visiting Paris can appreciate it.

In fact I had a woman come into the bookstore, looking for a gift for her nine year old daughter who requested a one month trip to Paris for Christmas. Well that was out of the question. But Armadillo in Paris and a Street Wise map will at least give her something to dream about.

So if you want a taste of Paris, and a delightful story about a spirited armadillo, pick up An Armadillo in Paris.


About mgill0627

I've always been a story teller. This made for some interesting missing homework and late for curfew tales. But I've never had a head for the pedantic rules of grammar and spelling. This made for some interesting comma placement and spelling choices. About ten years ago I decided to figure out how to share my stories, in spite of my shortcomings. I'm lucky to have great colleagues who can help me with the fine details. My favorite class in school was American History. The Colonial Cat's series gives me a chance to write about the great history of the United States and cats!
