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.
