Emma in Paris, written and illustrated by Claire Frossard, photographs by Christophe Urbain

Follow Emma’s story on her adventures in Paris, where she meets her cousin Amelie and begins an unlikely friendship with a cat named Edouard.

Christophe Urbain’s photography and Claire Frossard’s quirky illustrations go beautifully hand in hand. Reading this book feels like a stroll through the boulevards of Paris on a summer’s day. Emma visits historical landmarks, market stalls and cafes and takes us with her for the journey.

It’s a magnificent picture book.

Published by one of my favourite publishers of children’s books, Enchanted Lion Books.
